Last week was the 6th round in Misano. On Thursday it was raining heavily, but at our first free practice the track was quite okay. But I wasn't on a bike since the last race in Spielberg, where I crashed and I didn't get a feeling on the KTM. So it was useless to change anything for the second practice. There I could get a feeling and I could work on my setup.
In the qualifying practice I was in a fast group in the beginning, but after many riders went in the pit lane I was alone. I was also going in the pit lane. But I had to go through the pit lane for two times to find a group and it cost a lot of time. In the last few laps I found a group but they weren't really fast and P17 was not the best.
We had only one race on Saturday and my start was good. But in the second corner I got pushed off the track by other riders because it was really tight.
I was in the back of the field and I started to fight back. But I didn't get the confidence for the tyres and I needed some time for finding my rhythm. I could close a gap to a group fighting for P9 and I was fighting really well.
At the end I had a good strategy for the last lap and I won the fight in the group. All in all I had a really difficult weekend but P9 was okay because I started from P17.
On Sunday we had no stress and it was nice to have a day just for watching the world championship classes. In a week is the last event in Aragon and there I want to improve and give my best.
