“I felt very, very hot this year, more than the last year. So I don’t know if it was me or if it was the weather, but it is so great to win here again since my first participation in 2015, so this is the first time I win again,” said Briere.

Briere also placed second in 2016 and third in 2017 before missing last year’s edition because of European engagements.
