I came back from the collarbone injury of the previous week of Assen that forced me to miss that race and arrived in Germany for what I love to do... ride a bike!

I was so excited and I wanted to do my best because it was important for my mind!

After a fun day with the Schubert Helmet company, we moved to the circuit and I didn't see the time for put on my helmet, my gloves and my suit for ride the bike. One month far from race has been difficult.

I was so excited that i increased my speed every time more and more, so in the first race i fought with other four or five riders for the tenth position. Starting from P20 and take the P12 was good, but i want to do better,like every time that I do something.

So on Sunday i was motivated to do better and when I was fighting with other riders, a bad highside at the first corner threw me down from the bike and unluckily another rider ran over my arm and broke it.

An ambulance took me to the hospital and I was in surgery until the night.

I was there until Wednesday and today I am only thinking about when I can get back on my beloved bike.

I am very sad because for sure I have to miss the Austrian GP, that is so important for Red Bull because it is its home GP and i will try to be back for my home GP in Misano, but it will be very very hard.

We like hard things and we will fight to be back as soon as possible!
