Carlos Checa

"The two races were quite similar. When it started to rain in race one I found it hard to immediately understand the limits; I slowed too much in that moment and then, once I’d got back into my rhythm, I’d lost too much time and was unable to reach those ahead of me. In the dry I was just about able to stick with the others this wasn't possible in the wet.

In the second race it didn’t rain heavily until the later stages. There were points in which my bike ran quite smoothly and others in which I could feel the lack of power. But in those mixed conditions I made an evaluation and decided that there was no point taking risks for the little that I could have gained. Speaking in general about the whole weekend, the positive thing is that we have found a good setting in the dry, working well as far as the chassis and suspension is concerned and so I’m pleased from that point of view."
