I'm disappointed because we had a good pace, and I felt good on the bike; unfortunately, when trying to recover positions, I made a mistake, and I crashed. In any case, as the bike wasn't damaged, I managed to finish the Sprint to understand the conditions and try to do better tomorrow. I'm sorry for the team, and I thank them for the solid improvements we are doing this weekend.
