My GP of Germany
Sunday 20th June 2010
I didn't had such a good week-end for this 5th round of the WMX World Championship, despite the fact that I clinched my first pole position of the year on Saturday.
I had a good start on Saturday's moto and could follow Larissa Papenmeier's pace for a while, but then I lost some time behind a lapper and Steffi Laier could make a move over me so I finished third.
On Sunday morning I again set the fastest laptime during the warm-up.
I started second on moto 2 behind Steffi, Kiara Fontanesi quickly passed me and Steffi crashed in the German mud. Then I had to handle Larissa's come back, she was very motivated for her home GP and could pass me while we were in the traffic with lappers. I finished third and could walk on the third step of the podium behind Larissa and Kiara.
Again a disapointing GP for me but I'm going to keep the hard work as my speed is getting better and better, we could see it on Saturday where I got the pole position.
