Blog | Xavier Artigas pushed to the max in Misano and ready for Motorland

Hello everyone,

Since the last race in Austria my goal has been to be 100% for Misano's race.

I have been training on a motorcycle and also a lot of physical training to be strong and to gain weight.

The weekend in Italy did not go as expected, but I keep the positive. On Thursday afternoon during the track walk I had the first contact with the Misano circuit. There I could see the circuit for the first time, take notes and references so that when it is time to go on track with the bike, take the least time to learn it.

On Friday in both free practice I was working on memorising the track and with the settings of my bike. In the first laps of the Qualy I had a fall just when I started to go fast to find a good time. I was able to go out again at the end but it did not help me to get a good time and I had to settle for the last position on the grid.

At the Misano circuit he's the only one in which we only do one race, so he only had one chance and he had to take advantage of it. My goal was to make a good start and go back to finish the race the most advanced as possible. Finally I was able to reach the 15 position and stay very close to the group that was up to the 10th position, I missed a few laps to contact .......but so are the races.

Now it's time to put all my concentration in the last races of the season at the Motorland Aragon circuit, a circuit that I do know and in which I will give the best of myself.

Greetings and see you in Motorland.
