#87 Remy Gardner
“We had another positive day of testing in Qatar today. In the morning, there was a lot of wind, so we couldn’t ride much. Even so, we were able to try something out. In the afternoon, the conditions improved, and we did a positive job. We set the fourth fastest time, but were only a few thousandths off the top. I’m very happy with the pace we showed, as we are definitely on the right track. Once again, I want to thank the team. We still have one more day in which we will push to the fullest.”
