The 20 laps were really long and I gained a lot of experience. My first lap was really impressive, I managed to overtake several riders and I found myself in a good group. However, I had a couple of moments, really close to crash. Then I decide to stick with my goal, finish the race and enjoy. But I know I can improve a lot for next races. Thank you to the team and to American racing for the opportunity and all the people is supporting me.”
