First day of administrative checks here in Abu Dhabi at the Yas Marina F1 circuit! This morning i slept till midday because not being use to this heat it takes a couple of days to get adapted, infact yesterday and the other i day i was constantly feeling tired and with little energy whereas today i felt totally ok. Still a lot of competitors need to arrive and for sure everyone is going to be here by tomorrow. I got the chance to quickly get through thechecks, almost finished my bike and recharged the battery (it’s the same bike with which i raced Dakar) and put on all the stickers. In the late evening i went around the paddock meeting people and i had the chance to have a chat with Tonya Colson, an american girl which is going to race on her Ktm EXC, she used to work for Ktm UAE Media and this year decided to swap and become a rider. Here some photos of the day and the printed out maps for every stage 😉 click on the photos to zoom!
