It was nice to come back to Chile and race Valparaiso again! I forgot how crazy were the spectators and the track ; ) The track was challenging but at the same time so fun because the spectators was making so much noise ! I won the semi final in front of Filip Polc.
We went back up and after for the final, on the 3rd corner, I almost kill a dog who was walking on the track ; ) ! Besides that my run was fine maybe I didn’t push hard enough! But hard as well to find the balance between taking some risk and crashing. Filip won the race and I got 2nd.
Thanks to all the Chilean for the show and I will be back next year!
Hello everyone the BRIGADE is back on the race program for 2011!
As you guys know the weather lately wasn’t the best in Europe in general and especially at home with the cold and the snow condition!
I decide to go for a little trip in BRAZIL for the DH URBANO of SANTOS! I missed it last year due of my knee problem and it was important for me to be back this year, especially when this event have a huge TV coverage (only for Brazil 33 millions of person watched the race!!!).
We know how fast is this race and flat out, and the consequence of a crach could stop the season imediatlye! But I did it because I like the adrenaline!
Track was fun with wood corners and my V10 loved the stairs gap!
I manage to make it to the final improving my speed step by step, to finish 2nd in the final! Why second? Because Mario from Ecuador bit me : ) I made a little mistake and on the last corner I lost the control of the grip! Sorry about that!
I just want to say thanks to the organizer for the event and all the BRAZILIAN fan’s who were there and I will see you next year for another fun week!
Cheers to my sponsors to provide all the parts in time as well to be able to race in the best condition!
