“It wasn’t my day. Unfortunately, I crashed on the sighting lap. We were able to fix the bike but it never felt the same. I was struggling a lot in and then my engine seized. I was lent a replacement bike for Race Two, but I had to start from last position. I managed to battle through the field and get the hard-earned win. Husssain Al Kooheji”
