(CRHoy.com) The national cyclist María José Vargas failed to complete the Tokyo Olympics road test.
Vargas aimed to reach the goal, although it was clear that the task was not easy due to the complications of having to run alone.
The test in the Olympics was 137 kilometers, starting at the Fuji international speedway and arrival at Musashinonomori park.
María José rode with the group of favorites in much of the competition, but when the promotions came and they stepped up, she lost the wheel.
This happened near kilometer 70, even in the television shots it was observed that he was not having a good time on one of the climbs.
Minutes later the official website of the event reported that the Costa Rican was no longer in competition, a situation that other cyclists also experienced.
In total, 67 women took the starting line and Vargas hoped to become the first road cyclist to finish the competition, but she did not succeed.
