Totally it was a great weekend in Silverstone.
At first I tried to stay in the first group and battling to follow the top but it was difficult so that nobody could follow first rider. There were packed 5riders battling and switching to get the second place.
I was waiting and looking for the chance until last 2 laps. Then I pushed very heard last lap and jumped into the corner with first but overall I was 3rd.
It was a first time to ride rain condition with the KTM machine.
But riding machine into the rain was easier than I thought and I could get a good feeling.
Last 2 laps to go, I passed 2nd rider and pushed to the victory.
It was a great sensation when I listened to my national anthem on the podium.
Huge thanks to all who support and cheer me on. I know my dad is fully committed to my racing and truly I would give him this victory.
For now I flew to Barcelona from England and already started training with Kaito. We are cycling at 100km by bicycle and enjoying delicious paella at lunch today.
Can't wait the next race in San Marino next week!
