The last race weekend was my home race of the Rookies Cup at the Sachsenring. It was great to ride in front of all the German fans, but unfortunately my weekend on the track was over too fast.
My Friday started not so bad and I improved my feeling on the difficult track. Finally I got 14th in the Qualifying.
My start into Race 1 was bad and in the beginning I had to overtake some riders again. When I arrived on the front of my group, the leading group has already run away.
The whole race I battled with some other guys for 11th position, but unfortunately I had a highsider in the very last corner of the race because I made a mistake and got off the ideal line. During this crash I broke the radius of my left arm.
The doctors say that the recovery will take 4 weeks and in 4 weeks there is the next race on the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, so I really hope to be fit for that race.
Now I keep training as good as possible and try to recover as fast as possible.
