I’m excited, motivated, and happy
to race in our local roads before all my folks. For me,
Emakumeen Bira is my “home” race. It’s a special race for me. And I try to get prepared
as best I can for it. Tomorrow, we’ll take our bikes with us. IT’S GOING TO BE A WET STAGE
@EMAKUMEEN_BIRA In a stage race, you need to check
every small detail. Hydration and food are super important because everything you do that day
will mean something for the next. Any small distraction you may have will make you lose some time,
you’ll need to get it back the next day. In 2016, when I had the accident, my first race when I got back to cycling
was Emakumeen Bira. During a stage,
I broke away with Amanda Spratt, but in the sprint, she beat me. I felt sad… But happy at the same time. I didn’t know actually.
I couldn’t control my emotions. You always get so happy
when you win, right? But at the end, when you win the sprint, it’s so close you don’t know
whether you’ve won until the last minute. So you always get more excited
and enjoy it differently. With intensity.
