After the first two race weekends I'm really very happy. Races in Austin were fantastic, I enjoyed all time in the USA. Last weekend in Jerez also wasn't bad, but a little bit unlucky. All sessions were OK, I won them all.
Race 1 started well. I was 2nd and then I led a few laps. After I was passed by 3 or 4 riders and meanwhile Jorge got a little gap so it was difficult to catch him. Anyway I made a circuit record and by half race I was first. It stayed the same until the last corner where Jorge pass me. Finally 2nd place, so another important podium.
The 2nd race was very similar to the first. I started second, then I led a very long time with some breaks, a really long distance in 1st place. On the last lap I was passed and finished 2nd again.
From one side I was a little bit sad after the race, but from the other I can be happy that I held my series of podiums in all races this year. Also in the Cup I have got a very good position now. I hope to do the same or a better job in the next races and to make some more podiums or victories. I'm very much looking forward to Assen.
