ARÓN CANET – 1st35’53.028
I’m very happy after my third win of the season. We are improving in many ways; I am consistent in the front group and fast at all the circuits, and that is important. It was a very difficult race; I started from sixteenth but I was able to gain positions until I reached the front group. Then I studied my rivals and I could see that Jorge [Martin] was the one with the best pace. I tried to make it so that he was the one who broke the group, but it was not possible and I passed him instead. Although on the last laps Bastianini and another rider overtook me, I knew I could fight for the victory, which we got with the red flag . I’m very happy and I hope that Juanfran [Guevara] recovers very soon.
