“After more than a month without racing, I am so eager to get back to feeling the adrenaline and emotions typical of a race weekend. I’m at 100% physically and my hand seems to be back in ideal condition. It’s been a nice break with my family and daughters, but now it’s time to get back on track. You never know what can happen at Magny Cours where I have hardly ever ridden in dry conditions. I will try to have fun and take the maximum.“
