"I think VK races represent in the mountain what 100 and 200 meters races face at the track, because all runners are in the "readline" from start to finish which is the spirit of time-trial racing.🥵 The landscapes? Yes they are there and they are astonishing, but do we really have time to appreciate them? 😅Thank god for the photographers! Let's go!"
