Jeroen van Eck: “Finishing off my season with a victory in Brazil is just great, especially when wearing the leader’s jersey. The race course is just crazy! I really loved it. I felt very relaxed towards the finals in Congonhas, the crowd was absolutely amazing! I couldn’t be here where I am today without the help of my family, trainer, coach and of course my girlfriend. I believe it’s time for some well-deserved holidays now.”
