"In Europe, when I found these type of tracks, I felt really bad with the situation and I never find the good setup," said Superbike Championship points leader Elias on his first trip to Road Atlanta. "That's why I was worried before. When I arrive I try to see the right lines and I see the bike was working really well. I didn't find the same problem as Europe and I become a little bit more calm and trying to work with my team to solve some little problems. Now it is good. This is very difficult track - I think the most difficult track I have ever been (to). But is also the one that gives me the most satisfaction and great feelings - (with the) up and down, especially the fast one I think is 300 km (186 mph). I never felt this before this feeling."
