Aegerter: “When I was in the lead I got nervous…”

Aegerter: “When I was in the lead I got nervous…”

Dominique Aegerter explains what went through his mind during the #ItalianGP as he claimed his first podium of 2015.

Aegerter rode superbly during the race to claim his first podium of 2015, and at one point even led the race.

Dominique Aegerter: "Something decisive happened on Saturday in qualifying. My second position was a real surprise to me. But I also understood that I am capable of riding in a really good pace with my new bike (Kalex). In the race, the first laps with Tom were perfect. When he crashed and when I was in the lead I got nervous because I had no clue how far I can go. How much should I push? Rabat and Zarco were too strong for me but the fact that I was able to stick with the leaders for so long is really important for my confidence. The last five laps were difficult, I was finding it difficult to stay concentrated, I had a feeling that I lacked power. I would like to thank the whole team and those who have always believed in me and helped me despite a difficult start to the season. This podium is for them."
