Sergio García Dols

“At the beginning of the race I had a good pace, and this allowed me to keep in the group. However, in the middle of the race my pace dropped, I made a small mistake and the group separated lap by lap. I tried to keep up, but I couldn’t do it, and I don’t know why. I haven’t taken any points in these last three races and I don’t know exactly what has happened. I have to change something and I will try to do that, right to the end.”

“This was a very difficult weekend. I had never been in this situation before, of being in pain since Friday and with everything up against me. My start was not bad at all, and I was able to gain some places on the fast corners. Even so, I didn’t have the pace this weekend, the feeling with the bike was not good and the setup was bad. It was hard to push like we normally do and now it’s time to change things for next week.”
