"Lorenzo and I set ourselves a highly ambitious target that we could not achieve. I was in good physical shape but Lorenzo did not feel very well from the start, so we tried to finish the race and we did so, which is the most important thing. It's an impressive race which goes across a glacier; it is a breathtaking landscape,’ explained Jornet after the race.
