Pablo Nieto upbeat after a steady campaign

Pablo Nieto upbeat after a steady campaign

Before the race in Valencia, I was already happy with my season, and a podium in the last race of the year was a further satisfaction. I believe there´s nothing else to add, as last year I finished in 24th overall, and this year, I´m 6th. Ending the year this way is great for preparing the 2003 season. I´m very happy but I only regret the fact that I didn´t have a taste of victory. I would have liked to win a race, but the opportunity never came.

I´m going to have a few days off, and after I will begin thinking about preparing for the next season. First, it will be going back to the gym and to the usual fitness work. Later, it will be going back on track. Next year, I´ll be racing in the class, with the same team, but the main difference will be that I´ll have a factory bike. We planned to test in Jerez, on December 2nd and 3rd. It´s a private session organized by Aprilia, before the start of the official IRTA tests. I know the next season will be tough, with people like Vincent, the 2002 Champion, and Pedrosa, but I´ll try to do my best. That´s what it´s all about !.
