#87 REMY GARDNER
“I’m very happy to have achieved this time, because after a five-week break, we have managed to feel good again. Today things came relatively easily, but I am sure that tomorrow will be much more challenging. Regardless of whether it rains or not, the plan will be the same: to get as many points as possible. If we have to ride in the wet, we will make the most of the warm-up to find a good feeling and gain the necessary confidence that allows us to give everything in the race.”
