The track is not my favorite and for this reason I’m much more satisfied for the result. It was a difficult weekend because there were many strong riders but I was supported by a lot of people present around the track. My team worked very well and my bike was perfect, only in the second heat I had some problems at the start. I feel very good and I look forward from the next GP of Germany to ride back a TM MX 250Fi in MX2 class which I will ride for all the rest of the season ........ ".
