KUALA LUMPUR: Adam Norrodin is determined to make a stronger push in the last two rounds of the CEV Moto2 European Championship at Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia this weekend.
The 22-year-old rider, who is still recovering from an arm pump problem, had to seek treatment after three back-to-back races in Aragon earlier this month after he was unable to grip the handlebar of his bike for too long.
Arm pump problem is caused by restricted blood vessels in the forearms.
“I have arrived in Valencia with good preparations.
“I also did treatment for my arm pump problem, so I hope I will be in a better condition this weekend, ” said Adam, who is in his second season in the championship.
Adam, who rides for Liqui Moly Intact SIC Junior Team, earned top 10 finishes in all three rounds at Aragon.
He is placed seventh overall in the championship with 63 points and definitely needs to step it up to achieve the top five target.
Taiga Hada is the rider to chase as far as Adam is concerned with the Japanese now sitting in fifth overall spot on 85 points.
“There is pressure of course as it’s a 22-point gap I need to close in on. I can only give my best shot for the last two rounds and accept whatever is the outcome at the end of the day.
Adam finished 15th overall with 35 points last year.
Besides Adam, Syarifuddin Azman and Sharul Ezwan Sharil will also be in action in Valencia in the Moto3 World Junior Champ-ionship and the European Talent Cup respectively.
