“For two years we have been training very hard with part of the loads in the physical aspect. We had a problem in the launch of the launches that caused discomfort in one of the knees. We were polishing that, modifying the exit in the first turn and Now, with the five turns, there is practically no pressure on the knee, “he explained.

He is a boy with a lot of will to train that always seeks to improve the brand “.
