Javi - 5th
I had a really good race after a good start, when I overtook Chambon. Halfway through the race I started having problems with my front tyre and had two big slides. From then on in, I decided top pace myself and get a good fifth place. I am very happy with the result and would like to thank my team who have worked so well for me.
