Last weekend I had a race in the Northern Europe Cup in Oschersleben. It was really hot at this weekend and it was difficult for all the riders. It was the start of the second half of the season and the first half wasn't really good.
For this weekend we changed the whole bike setup. Directly after the first practice I had a much better feeling on my standard Moto3 Honda. After the qualifying I was in the first row on position 3.
Both races were on Sunday and the weather was really hot. In the first race I had a bad start but after the first lap I got back to 3rd position. The first was going away because we were fighting in a group of 5 and that cost us a lot of time. It was a really hard but cool fight.
At the end I won the fight in the group and finished second, my first podium in this season.
In the second race I had a really good start and I was first in the first corner. The whole race was a crazy fight against two other riders. In the last two corners we made three overtakes and at the end I won the race by 0.090 sec.
Now I'm 3rd in the championship and after this great weekend I also have on the Honda a very good feeling.
Before this weekend the helmet sponsor of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup, Schuberth, invited me for a visit in their company.
It was really interesting to see how our helmets are produced and I want to say a big thank you to Schuberth for this opportunity.
Now I try to prepare myself for the next race in Misano.
