“Everything was wrong today. The track was slippery. The rear part of the bike was not stable at all when accelerating and all riders were faster when leaving turns. The bike was “nervous” a lot and the vibration made foot even more painful. The only conclusion is that we made it through the finish line and without a crash. That´s all. I hope everything will be ok in Misano.“

„The warm up was our first wet session in the whole season, so we were not able to make a fast lap. We tried to set the bike as we expect it to act during the race, but in reality the track slips a lot and Karel suffered by lack of grip on the rear. Additionally it is very hard to ride in this condition, if the rider is not in perfect shape. We will analyze a data from the bike to find a solution for future. Let´s hope that we Karel will be ready in Misano to fight among best open bikes. “
