Tough weekend at Silverstone
August 7th, 2010
The weekend started out not too bad. I knew that Silverstone was going to be a hard track as it has a lot of long straights so you need a really strong engine. Qualifying was ok and it was good to get into Superpole but we are still struggling with chatter when we have grip with the qualifying tyre, so I ended up 19th on the grid which was the best we could do. In race one, I was taken out by another rider on lap one, then in race two we were starting a little bit on the back foot after not finishing the first race so didn't have the set up information the other guys had. Eight laps into the race I was pushing hard to try and hang on to the group of four infront of me, when I lost the front on the brakes and ended up in the gravel pit. I tried to hold it on my knee but it just went away. So now I have four weeks holiday, I am going to concentrate on my fitness and be ready for the first race back in Nurgburgring before we travel to Imola and Magny Cours for the final two rounds.
