Betinho won another and onto the top spot on the podium at the last stage of the competition
Kid also spoke of the individual results of the team in the competition.We also had impressive results in the individual.Flavio Santos Baiano took second place overall.Baiano was one of strong candidates to win this issue, but to have the tire of his bike stuck twice in the 2nd round of the competition, has been damaged.But Baiano is a great athlete and has shown that in the mountain stages, when the race leader expected to rise after a fall.At that moment he could have gone and taken the 42 seconds apart.However, he stopped and waited, something that his opponent has not done in Step 2, when Baiano had a flat tire.So these things count a lot and we know the value of our athletes. The Fiorilli James also made a proof of recovery and reached the third place overall.In the mountain stages, he had everything to win, but had his flat tire when there was little more than 1 km to the end.Still did not give up and finished the race, which earned him third place overall, said Kid.
