There was some progress this weekend, especially in the race. I got a good start and then was able to maintain a decent pace. The tyre choice wasn't the right one, but I prefer not to focus on that. I focused on my riding and the setting. I knew that the front wouldn't last and that the rear was the right one for the race, but I wanted to keep everything like it was in the practice sessions so I could just ride and try things. I have to say that the pace when the tyres were fresh was decent - nothing spectacular but enough to stay up there, so that looks like a step ahead.
