While expressing pleasure, Donavan Grondin, through his social media, stated that it was an amazing points race as the last time he looked at the points screen, he was 3rd, so he was thinking of going for the silver or bronze.
He added, “European Omnium Champion. That was an amazing points race. The last time I looked at the points screen, I was 3rd, so I was thinking of going for the silver or bronze. Steven Henry told me to score Simone Consonni, and I gave it my all in the last sprint. When I saw that I had won I couldn’t believe it. Thank you all for your support and congratulations. See you tomorrow for Madison.”
MEP Stéphane Bijoux always remained a helping hand for the small island countries, especially the Caribbean region. He also lauded Dominica for its efforts against the global issue called Climate Change.
