Folger: “10 laps before the end I realized I could win”

Folger: “10 laps before the end I realized I could win”

AGR Team’s Jonas Folger reveals the moment when re realized he would win during the race in Jerez.

Folger had a great start and was in front together with Rabat while the class leader Zarco lost terrain. In lap 10, the German rider of the AGR overtook Rabat and decided to run alone. Jonas set the fifth fastest lap of the race. The season gave him a chance after the difficult situations he lived in Austin and Argentina and he took his chance.

Jonas Folger:
“10 laps before the end I realized I could win. I was pushing at 100% and to be sure Tito wouldn’t catch me I took a lot of risks during 5 laps to get the margin I needed and only thinking about reaching the Finish Line. I focused in order to avoid mistakes and did my best in each corner, which is why I could win today. I also did my best to manage the tyres at the beginning and when I started losing grip at the end I knew I’d be able to manage it. We can be very proud of our performance this weekend. Thank you very much to the team and the sponsors”
