Hello everyone! At this point, I think it is well-known what I enjoy about a Grand Prix. The excitement of the weekend is awesome and the satisfaction when things go well is indescribable, but they are very intense days. Every GP is a world in which you have to isolate yourself from the rest, that's why I need to return home after finishing to reconnect with reality.
Cervera, my hometown, is my starting point. Having the certainty that I will be at peace there comforts me, as there is nothing like the calm of being at home. Once I arrive, the first thing I do is walk the dogs. I am lucky to have a lot of countryside next to my house, so we all enjoy those walks through the grass and dirt like children. However, I can't get back very late because I can't imagine ending the day without going to see my grandfather. Doing both things helps me to realize that I am back in my town.

Nowadays it’s more difficult to plan a lot of things, but plans with my friends were also commonplace. During the weekends without a race, as they work during the week, we always used to organize something. Swimming pool, meal, barbecue... Anything was good to distract us. We usually had dinner at an Italian restaurant in the town and ordered pizza or went to a grill house. Grilled Catalan sausage and mongetes are always on the cards, as you know, the typical food from the area. Although if I had to choose a place, I would choose to eat at home.
There was also time for sport and I joined their informal padel tennis matches or I went to train with them, in the futsal team they have set up. It is more difficult with the arm injury, because I have to be very careful, but months ago it was a way of sharing my exercise time with them. When I can return, I will give it my all again, because I can't imagine practicing a sport without giving it my all.
I usually do everything in Cervera: from training to getting a haircut, or spending my free time... Not so much going to the supermarket, I only do so when I have to survive in some way, but everything that I can do I do there. For me, returning to my hometown is a sign of peace and, undoubtedly, the ideal place to prepare myself mentally for the next race.
Best wishes to all the Box Repsol fans!
