Following last year's victory in the T4 race, the former biker from Chile has emerged victorious in the T3 category, but this time he has taken no stage wins in the process.

"It was a long race. These two weeks went pretty smoothly. It was a completely different scenario compared to last year, when I had to go flat out every day without fail. After stage 2, we held a considerable lead, so we just needed to focus on making it to the finish day after day. I'm really happy that our strategy worked out. It was a test of endurance, we had to avoid breakdowns. After all that, victory tastes really sweet."
