Info about Oliveira:

“I’m so happy, it’s such a joy to win again the national title in time trial – Oliveira commented – The course was demanding, it required good legs. In addition, Rui was strong today, but I was feeling very good, so I could realize a top performance. I’m also happy for the compliments I received from Rui: he was happy for me, even if I preceded him at the end of a intense fight”.
