The race was the Vivicittà, a 12 km (7,45 ml) run at the same time in many cities all over the world and the battle plan was not very ambitious: to finish in 56 minutes, that is to say 14 minutes every lap where we have to "defeat" 4 incredible uphills.
The Black Knight and Sir Giorgio were very regular and finished shoulder to shoulder in 55.48 (4’39”/km – 7’29”/ml) but, what a surprise, the final score was a delusion: 113° of 162 and 14 of 21 in the age group (Sir Giorgio 24 of 33). It means that 4’39/km, in this city, is a very slow pace.
The day after the Black Knight felt very bad and spent 7 days in the bed for a terrible flu, moreover he had to rest other 7 days to recover.
The mileage of april was only 116 km (72 ml).
