TrialGP Netherlands 2019 - Rider statements
Today we knew that we had to hold on. At the beginning of the race, a small failure could delay you, so we knew we would suffer. We had a very good race, though it’s a pity that we got the time penalty in the first lap, as we did a very good second lap, with 0 points.
I am in a very good moment in terms of my riding and physical shape, so I’m very happy. I want to thank the team for all their work.
The terrain and the areas I found today were really difficult for me. There were a lot of steps, many triples and everything was quite dry. I started badly, but then I recovered a bit. I’m very happy with my riding today.
This fourth place is very important for the overall standings and we’ll try to get on the podium next week in Belgium.
