Not a great way to start the year. The bike felt slow from practice. Riders blasted past me on the straights, so only qualified 15th.
Race 1: I had a good start. Got up to 7th, pushed too hard trying to keep up with front pack, got off line, hit a damp patch and down I went.
Race 2: Not such a good start , the bike got slower and slower. Ended up 11th, would have been much worse if so many riders had not fallen.
Time sheet showed that through the speed trap I had the slowest bike on the circuit, 11km down on the fastest. I had no chance!!
I hope the bike is better for this weekend.
Look forward to seeing you in all in Estoril.
