It was a great weekend for the 11th round in Misano Italy
My feeling to ride a bike was great from the first practice and I had a big confidence for the race.
In the QP, I had try to find the best setting and finished with third position.
After the Qualify, I had strategy how to get the best result thinking of the race the next day.
In the race, I mistook the start and slipped back to 11th position. I passed riders one by one but when I came back to 6th position, the front group was 2 seconds away from me. It took time to catch them.
4 laps to go, I could finally catch the front and battle for the podium. Overall I finished with 3rd and on the podium but quite as good as the result I expected because my feeling was great.
But I learned from that a lot and for sure I won't never make the same mistake. I will be well prepared for the last race in Aragon.
Can't wait for the last race in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup!!!
