Gadea satisfied with debut season

125cc rookie Sergio Gadea says he has had no plans to rest during the summer break as he looks forward to continuing his Grand Prix education at Brno on August 22nd. The Spanish youngster has learnt volumes alongside experienced compatriot Pablo Nieto in the opening nine races of the season and says he will be doing everything he can to put that into practice over the next three months.

"I am training as hard as possible right now because there are a lot of races coming up in a short space of time and there won't be much time to do any physical work in between," commented Gadea, who scored his first points with fourteenth place at the Sachsenring circuit a month ago.

"Also, with the races so close together before the break I wasn't able to do much training and I felt my physical condition go down – so it's nice to have a rest now and work on that both physically and mentally.

"The first half of the season has gone well for me but it could always be better. It took me a while to get used to the bike and find the right set-up, but the important thing is that we seem to have found it now. In Brazil we made a change to the geometry of the chassis and it worked well, although I crashed in the race. In Germany we were able to see that we were on the right lines.

"Now I want to be regularly in the top twenty and scoring points at as many races as possible. The objective for this season was to learn the circuits and work as much as possible towards next season, which will be really important for me. Hopefully I can stand out between now and the end of the year."
