Simo Kirssi: "That's how I like it - right from the start. Everything was plain perfect today, the bike, the team, the track. I do enjoy riding here at Walldorf, it's a challenging track, sort of Enduro style, with lots of fans. This year things were particularly tricky, though. Because of the rain there was a very limited choice of lines, and the the cross section was difficult also. But I made no mistakes and even had some reserves. There was only one moment when Stefan came closer, but I was pretty much in control the whole time."
