As the most experienced rider of the front row, Rubinho marked some decisive moments of the race. “At a certain moment of the race, I felt my heart beating slow, on the last 4 laps. None of the rivals we’re struggling and I was on the front row, on the leadership. At 38, I got to ride on my limits, because it’s hard to recover it later. I speeded up and gave all that I got, defining the rhythm. On the decisive lap, Cocuzzi sprinted and I tried to go along with him, but I went out of boost. My objective was to get to the podium and I’m leaving here happy.”, said Rubens.
