After in last minute not having a transport down for my race I was almost giving it all up. I did stop my work on thursday 15:00 and I decided to go to Emmy to discuss how or what else to do instead this weekend. Only to be stuck on a train for 1 and a half hour extra becourse a downed line.. so my temper was really under preassure and I did feel that the time only did fly away.
Finaly at Emmys place we did talk and we bouth did think: no, this was really our plan to go to Kopcany. We dont change becourse of someone else fuck everything up! We really really wanted to go! I did have Emmys song Fight in my head..
From there it was some hours of work as we needed to pack our things in a Opel Corsa, calculate and get money as my own money only would have taken us half way in one direction. In Czech republic I did have super help by Michal & Lucie and Jirka to organize place to pick up my bike and find a car to use for the race. At 23:00 in thursday we finaly did go by our self on the roads!
After 25 hours with about 1300 km travel and have to put all our stuff in the rental car we was finaly in the paddock in the next night! Only to find that the paddock was totaly bad organized with no place left as many people did put there normal car in. After being trow away from 2 places by some bitch that did say the empty places was booked for even more cars to come we was almost ready to go home again.
Early on saturday morning did we tell the marshalls to get us a place somewhere. And they did move a car and make us some good place on a asphalt Spot near the road out to the track.
Saturday qualifyings did go just to learn the track and see that the bike was correct set-up. The position for the grid was not the best with the 11:th best time for my class. Being to tired from the travel down and the heat with 32 degrees celcium.
Evening was spend in a really nice resturance with live Slovakian folk music.
Race day on sunday our class did race at 15:00 With 33 degee in the shadows. I did a good start and was up on 8:th and did hold this position when it was 3 laps to go. Then my bike did feel a little strange in braking and cornering. So I stoped by the side and noticed one of my fairing stay was broken! The marshalls didnt have any tools to help me get the fairings of. So I did brake the other side to with my foot so I could take of the fairing. So I did drive last 2 laps without any fairings! Bike did wheelie a lot without them on!! :D
The race was redflag when a 250cc did crash on the exit of he esses.
But I did the race and did finnish it even with all the problem before the race and under the race! Nothing can stop me! I fight!!
This race was also my 30:th real road race start! Dont think that anyone else that race rrr from Sweden today have done this many start!
Big thanx to all help for this race! My team, Emmy, Michal, Lucie, Jirka and everyone that in some way did support me!!
