SAM LOWES- NOT CLASSIFIED
“I am very disappointed with how the race went, mainly because the warm-up went well, the feeling with the bike was very good and also the pace was consistent, unfortunately in the race I felt something strange and I lost some time, but I was going well, and even later, when I realized I could push I gave gas, I felt I could reach the front group, but in the end my fender exploded due, we think, to something between the tire and the fender, I could continue but I was given black flag. Too bad because I was strong and I could finish the race at least among the top five. Now I want to leave this unfortunate day behind me and get back on the podium at Aragon. “
