José A. Hermida has raced again on a circuit that is just 90km from his place. He got there after a great second half of the season and with the desire to continue on that line. "This is a special race and I felt motivated and excited to provide a good show for the spectators and friends who have come to see me, especially in a circuit where I have never performed well", explained the Catalan rider after the race.
José has offered us a good race, very consistent and in which has been passing riders as laps went by. "The truth is that I felt with the strength and capacity to ride among the best and that, regardless of the result, always makes you enjoy the race. I have reached the final two laps in a group that could fight for places between 8th to 15th and finally I have finished close to top ten, "said the Multivan-Merida rider.
But the race had a plus of emotion: "everyone asks me what I will do next year and the truth is that I don't even know it myself. I have changed my coach, I have worked very hard following his guidelines and we have got the reward of all that. This makes me feel confident of my level and I have to think calmly about my future. I'll be at home for a week and there I can value all the details of my situation and decide what I want to do. "
José will compete in a week in the Swiss Epic making duo with his teammate Thomas Litscher.
