Blog | Philipp's comeback | 2011

Hi everyone.

Last weekend was the 2nd round of the German championship. It was the first race in the IDM for me and the first race after my broken collarbone. We decide to ride the race on Wednesday before the event.

On Friday we had 3 free practices. I wanted to get back in my old rhythm but my collarbone hurt too much and I was not so safe.

On Saturday I rode OK lap times but I was not so happy because my collarbone hurt in every training a little bit more. I finished the qualifying in 6th place. For Sunday we changed a little bit the engine setting . During the race weekend I worked a lot with the track map and the data recording. In the Warm-up I did my running in job.

The race was not so good. The start was OK but in the first few laps I was not aggressive enough. Some riders pass me and I dropped back into the 8th position. During the race I lost the feeling in my hand and my shoulder hurt a lot. I finished the race in 8th.

Now  I am looking forward to Nürburgring, the 3rd round of the IDM

See you,

Philipp #5
