Andrea Adamo # 80: "It was a decent day. In the first moto, I got a good start but the bike had a set-up that I really didn't like because we were trying something new but the road wasn't the right one. I was not feeling well and I did not have a good 'feeling' in the driving, as a result, I struggled the whole heat. In the Supercampione we changed the set-up and I felt much better. I had a good race and I am confident of the final result, an overall 8th and 4th in MX2. We have saved the day in the 'corner', let's say! Now we will have about a month to prepare for the first race of the Italian Prestige Championship in Maggiora and we will concentrate on improving even more."
