Unfortunately my shoulder conditions before Australia were true…
Races went as you know, but the problem to my shoulder once I was on the bike was worst than I thought…

For those who don’t belong to the motorbike world, this would seem like a very long holiday… but actually, it isn’t like that! In very truth, I have to say that I spent lots of winters trying to heal injuries that occurred during the season, sometimes through surgical interventions and endless rehabilitations and sometimes just [...]
