Incredible performance of Ewen Fernandez who has been very ambitious this Thursday night in San Benedetto del Tronto. The weather did not look Italian, but rather "Breton" or "Norman"... Was it a sign for the native of Le Manche Department (in Normandy) and his compatriot from Saint Malo (in Bretagne) ?
Anyway, Ewen Fernandez escaped from the pack for a solo ride at the beginning of the race, sometimes completely alone, sometimes joined by another skater, in order to collect as many points as possible. He then got back in the pack to rest for a bit, before escaping again for some extra points at the end of the race, so that he could consolidate its leadership. With a total amount of 21 points, he finished the race way ahead of his opponents. Alexis Contin, was not only an awsome teammates, since he also managed to grab the silver medal.thanks to 12 points taken in the last part of the race? Gary Heckman (Netherlands) took the bronze medal with 10 points.
