Despite a crash in the first part of the race, Kristian Kirilov managed to finish the duathlon in second place overall. “With this bike, I was faster on the downhills than I usually go with my own, but there was a hole that I didn’t see, so I hit it and I crashed. I hit my shoulder that was not in a great shape from a previous crash. I continued the race, but I started feeling pain in the shoulder on the descends. For the next part of the race I started feeling pain in the back too. I don’t want to seem like I’m looking for excuse. I believe the reason I finished second is that I was training mostly for shorter distance races” – says the young athlete.
We wish Kristian more luck for the next races, he has the rest.
