"My pace is really good, but starting from seventh is always very difficult, very tough. We're going to try to make a good start and ride some good first laps, which we have been working really hard on this weekend. Anyway, the race is always different, so then we will see where we are. The bike is moving a lot, I'm fighting it every lap. But anyway, luckily I'm physically really fit. I think I can arrive at the end of the race in a good condition. It's going to be a tough and long race, with many bikes and overtakes, so we have to be smart and also manage the tyres."
