In said report, the decision to report negatively on the holding of the test is justified in five points:
“..1) The route is covered with trees with cut branches, in the shape of a spear and it could be the case that a runner could hit himself.
2) Throughout the race, there are many branches about to fall, and it could cause an accident to a participant.
3) The two lanes are not available, because the branches of the trees and the stones are found in both parts of the paved area, which means that the two lanes of traffic cannot be used.
4) There are areas of the asphalt that have cracks and the wheels of the bicycles could enter them, skid and fall.
5) In addition to the participants, both the volunteers, the organizers and security forces and bodies could be affected by some fall from branches or trees and lead to both personal and material accidents…”.
