The team did a great job and I've been competitive career, learning and even behind Redding Nakagami some secrets from each intermediate partial. At first I could follow Nakagami and luckily I had the pace to catch Redding.

I thought we had settled in the warm up, where I had a pretty good pace, but the race has come back and I could not ride as I wanted. Put the bike in the corners I could not and I've been playing a fall at every turn, even shooting a second slower than yesterday. It was very hard to finish, so all good are the seven points scored. We have been looking at the telemetry with the team and we will seek to solve the problem based on the U.S. side. " Axel Pons, fall "I started very confident and I felt comfortable on the bike. The problem is that I wanted to quickly retrieve all lost in the fall of classification. The rush I have played a trick, I made a mistake and I've gone down when wheel was Simeon, who was tenth at the end. While I have been on the track was fast and climbing positions with good feeling on the bike. It was a shame, but I'll take the good and hope to return to the right track in two weeks in Texas. "
