Blog | Marc Garcia fighting at the front in Brno

Hi everyone,

A week ago we had the 7th and 8th Rookies Cup rounds at the Brno Grand Prix.

In free training I had a bit of trouble with the front brake and I had that do all the training without a front brake.

In the QP knew he could be among the first three but I as I always make the time alone and the other riders go together and can take the slipstream, I finished in 7th position.

In the first race was very motivated I wanted to make first, I did a great start that placed me 2nd at the first corner. I put together my first two or three laps well until I made several errors, sliding the rear and lost ground to the first group and slipped back to the second group.

In the second group it was a big fight up to the last curve, in the last curve I went for third but I finished fourth at the line.

For the second race I changed the play as I did not want to commit the same errors that I made in the first race. so I didn't run for first and I held back behind the group for most of the race.

I knew I had a better race rhythm than the others and on the last lap I could pass 5 riders and I could take 3rd.

I am very happy with the course I have, now I'm getting ready for Silverstone where I am sure to do better.

A greeting to all. :)
