Toni Bou

“I am very happy: I would never have imagined getting here. I didn’t know about the 200 GPs, I don’t usually get hung up on the numbers, but I am very excited to reach 100 victories, but even more to find out that I have won 50%, which I think is an incredible achievement. Today I felt very good about the injury, every day I am better, so I am very happy. We had to push hard today as the rivals are very strong. We will continue fighting hard in this complicated championship.”
