After nearly a year, I finally found the way to write you…

After nearly a year, I finally found the way to write you…
I’m sorry for this long absence…. but they were very intense months.
As you know, me and Manu are waiting for the longest and maybe most important contest of our life. So scary!!! ; ) )
We will live day by day facing the happiness and the effort step by step…
I always say to myself that if our grandparents got it by during the war, nowadays we will make it.
We didn’t attend any kind of course neither prenatal nor for parents, we want to learn everything thanks to our vocation and discover new things every day.
The Fifa World Cup is going to finish, unfortunately Italy has done the same bad impression as always…
I don’t speak about the unsatisfying score, it happens in this kind of competitions,
but I speak about the Italians’s behaviour toward their team.
After the first match against UK, everybody acclaimed the team: “the best ever team”, “the incredible team”, Balotelli already carried in triumph…
And then… after 2 consecutive defeats, everybody began to disapprove the team: the management, the [...]

Barcelona: I was hoping to take a step forward…


Final result: DNF. “I had a setup that was different than usual and I was hoping to take a step forward, but unfortunately hard luck reared its ugly head with a problem in the gearbox between third and fourth from the first lap. Anyway, that’s normal considering the fact that this is only the second GP for the seamless gearbox. We’ll see about continuing the work we weren’t able to complete today in the tests [...]

Mugello: it wasn’t easy to ride…

Final result: 18th. “It wasn’t easy to ride because I continued to have various setup problems so I had a difficult race. Aprilia made a big effort bringing various technical innovations here, including the seamless gearbox that works well, but now I need some chassis changes that can help me.”

Le Mans: it was a difficult weekend

Final result: 18th “It was a difficult weekend where I never found the right feeling with the bike. Then today in the race the problems with the gearbox made things more complicated and slowed me down, so I wasn’t able to do much better. It’s a shame. After Jerez we could have done better, but [...]

Jerez:… starting from behind doesn’t help.

Final result: 18th “Starting from behind doesn’t help, so I struggled a lot in the early laps and then finally I was able to set my pace. When I caught up Miller I was faster than him but unfortunately we are still struggling with grip on the rear and even though he didn’t brake very [...]

termas de Rio Hondo: it’s a shame…

Final result: 20th “It’s a shame because I got off the line well and I had gotten ahead of several other riders. But from the very start I had problems with the gearbox and by the eleventh lap I had to stop. Fortunately we’ll be racing again in a week, and I hope the weather [...]

Doha: it wasn’t the fastest race of my life…

Final result: 21st “It wasn’t the fastest race of my life, but on a new bike in a new category it’s what we expected. On the other hand, we finished the race, our first true long run, and we gathered a lot of data that will be essential to our development process. We need time. [...]
