AAlex Espargar they had to spur him on his team. Even in the celebration with Aprilia and its traditional photo after each podium -in this case for the Maverick Vials– It was a bit cold until it was released. The reason was that, despite his bestial recovery and his final quarter, he had a certain resentment for not having achieved victory. Everyone told him that when he watched the race more times, his feelings would change.
And it is that, to many, his reaction and dizzying growth during the test I reminded them of some of Valentino Rossi or Marc Márquez in his best moments, which is saying a lot. The Granollers competitor himself lived some of them ‘in situ’ and others he saw on television. But he doesn’t compare to the multi-champions. “No, Marc and Vale… I I remember impressive comebacks by Marc, but he ended up winning. I didn’t win, I finished fourth, but it was very good because I overtook riders of as much level as the ones I overtook, and that I passed through the finish line and on the board he told me: ‘Minus 0.5’, which meant that I was leaving them behind, it was brutal. The feeling on the track was incredible, It has been worth it, more than Argentinaeven despite not taking home the win”, he explained.
The Catalan, despite everything, admitted that the Assen appointment had served him, and a lot, to raise his self-confidence, which despite already being high, is now shot. “I go on vacation very satisfied, I wanted to cut him to less than one race and I have cut him almost 15 points. It’s very important to me, especially because I think consistency will help us fight for the title, but you need to be as fast as anyone else to win races. Today I proved, luckily also to myself, that I have the speed, that I can be the best on track because without that he can’t win the title, that was very important”, he stated.
