Hi everybody
I was in my first race this season and everything went better than we waited.
In the practise i was about to seconds behind last years best.

First qualification i got about the same than last year.
In second i was 0.3 faster than last year so that was promissing.......

I lost the second best time by 0.002 second.Anyway 3:rd grid for me ...exellent

Race
5 second before start i messed up somehow with my clutch,jump start...20 seconds penalty. :bawling: ...great start.
I try to forget that and do the best i can..
I feeled very self confident and six laps i followed Petri who was in second place.In seventh lap i passed him and went for my own riding and the following lap i made the fastest lap in the race :f4: .The next lap in a very fast corner my front wheel just slip under me :jsm: ...BUT somehow when i was in the sand the bike was up and i did 100 m motocross and back to the race....i have tried to think what i did but i dont have a clou how i survived off that...
anyway i came second to the flag but with my penalty i was THIRD. :guitarist
First podium for me ever and with the pics you can imagine my feelings...... :) :ahhh:

next weekend next race will see.....

ciao mike :smoking:
