Sergio García Dols
Continue fighting. "In these two weekends it was very difficult for us to find a good feeling on the track. In today's race there was a lot of contact with other riders, and after one of those incidents it took me a while to get settled again. At least I was able to continue fighting in the second group, which I think is good bearing in mind the difficulties we had. We will continue giving everything to improve. I hope that we continue our progress at Brno."
I still have a lot to learn “Today I made a great fightback, starting from seventeenth position on the grid and finishing ninth. It was a great job done by the entire team. After the first few laps, which are always difficult, I rode faster and faster and felt better on the bike. I led my group for several laps, and in the final stretch I was able to get closer to the group that I was leading. I know I still have a lot to learn, but we have taken a step forward over the last two weeks, so I am satisfied.”
