After 4km of the 13,4km long course with 1230m elevation gain that includes also 210 m of descent, he felt stronger than his closest opponents. Teklay, also second in 2014, was the only one who tried to follow him. At the end, he difference between the winner and the second was almost 2 minutes, and between the second and third was another 2 minutes.
Anyway, the men’s field was very strong and colourful – seven countries were represented in top 10 and with one French in-between.
