SAM LOWES – 5th
“The weekend started very well and yesterday I had the pole position, also the warm up this morning went very well. I’m not happy with how the race went because after the pole I was expecting at least to stay on the podium,but after a contact with Corsi I lost many positions, I managed to pass other riders but the gap from the first was too big. This afternoon the temperatures were higher than in the practices and the set up of the bike was not perfect,but we will work hard in the next race to win “.
