At another track that Cody had never been to before, he used the three practice sessions on Friday and two qualifying sessions on Saturday to learn the nuances of the Grand Prix circuit, getting faster with each session. He qualified on the inside of the fifth row in the 34-rider field.
A very good start put him into Turn One with the leaders, but he was hemmed in on the inside and had to wait until the end of the first lap to start passing other riders. Cody gained six positions over the next nine laps, but the race was cut short by a red flag with two laps remaining. Cody finished ninth overall and first in the Rookies category.
“I got a really good start, which helped me get up with the faster guys who have been racing at Catalunya for years,” said Cody. “I passed a rider or two each lap, and my times kept coming down. The bike worked well the faster I went.”
