Strong Sepang qualifying for Vazquez, Martin and Moncayo
The JHK T-Shirt LaGlisse had a good qualifying session at the cicuit of Sepang. The team hs worked very hard to find the best setup for the bikes of Efrén Vazquéz and Adrián Martín who, once on their bikes, have given everything despite the complicated track conditions and the suffocating heat.
Efrén, who suffered all day yesterday and all night with food poisoning, put in the 7th best time, while Adrián reached his best qualifying position in the dry. In addition to that, both riders gain one place and one row, now starting 6th and 9th respectively, after the race direction penalized Luis Salom for the race incident in Japan.
Andalucía JHK T-Shirt LaGLisse team rider Alberto Moncayo finished the qualifying in 15th position. Although it’s not what he and the team have been looking for, they’re satisfied because they improved the setup.
Yesterday I felt bad and spent all afternoon in bed and I also had a very bad night. This morning I didn’t want to overdo it because I dehydrated yesterday and I wanted to conserve my energy for qualifying. Still, I finished out of breath, but I’m quite happy with the final position. I think tomorrow we can be in the leading group. Now I have to work with the team to see if we can improve a couple of points, but we have a good pace and can have a good race.
This morning I just got on the bike and I noticed that it was going very well. The truth is that the team has been working hard through the night to give me a bike that’s almost perfect. I could improve by more than one second and, even though this afternoon the track wasn’t perfect, I’m very happy with my time, especially because I could give the team some pleasure, and tomorrow we’ll go out with more motivation than ever. This is like a gift and tomorrow I will fight tooth and nail to be with the leading group.
The position doesn’t reflect the results of our work but I’m happy. This morning didn’t go well at all but we turned the bike around and this afternoon we found the right way. The most important thing is to maintain a good pace when I’m riding alone. I could have done with one more lap because I was with a good group and had a run-off. The race tomorrow will be difficult because it’s going to be very long in this heat. And also there are a lot of riders in front of me, but I trust in my pace.
