CT: OLIVEIRA (POR) - 'It was a s*** choice by me'

GLASGOW - Comments from Rui OLIVEIRA (POR) after finishing 12th in the men's omnium in the Glasgow 2018 European Championships at Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, Emirates Arena on Saturday.


On his crash in the omnium elimination race, which delayed the event for ten minutes while the track was repaired:

"S***. I just used a (too) small gear - a f****** big mistake.

"I was afraid I was not able to follow the guys if I chose a big gear, but f***, I ruined my race. It was totally my fault."

On disappointment following the crash:

"So much. I had good lengths but I couldn't keep up the pace because it was a s*** choice by me."
