The Jerez race is one of the hottest in the calendar.
And so was this week end. It was a tough weekend for our guys, even if luck was not one to remember.
A fourteenth place for Danilo Petrucci, still in the apprenticeship phase on his KTM, a crash for Alex Rins, deceived by a dip when he was in the leading group, and another top ten for Aron Canet, who however showed that he was worth a lot more than that.
The next race will not be so hot ... because Le Mans often offers adverse weather conditions. But this will not change the commitment of our team, who always take to the track to win and do well.
Speaking of looking good ... have you taken a look at our new Nolan and X-Lite collections? In addition to being safe and performing, our helmets have become even more beautiful for you.
DANILO PETRUCCI 14th
"It was a difficult race, but we managed to take some points. We are still trying to find a good setup on the bike. We have to manage to use this tyre, as we are quite slow at the beginning of the race and able to do a good pace later. For sure, it was hard, because we were already far from the front guys quite early on. Anyway, it was one more race to gain experience.”
Tomorrow there’s the test here and we can try something new. For sure, this is not the position we want, but we are working very hard to improve the bike and to fight closer to the front. I would like to thank all my team for their hard work. We have to continue like this and I’m sure the results will come."
ALEX RINS 12th
"The crash today was a shame, it was bad luck really. There’s a bump at that corner, and normally it’s not much of a problem, but with the full fuel tank it felt quite bad and then the rear stepped out, I released the brakes, braked again, and went wide - that’s where I lost the front, on the dirty part off line. But despite losing part of the aero-fairing, I rejoined, had nice pace and I actually felt very good. I was faster than the leading group. I’m really sorry to all the team who have worked really hard as always. Let’s continue to work for the next races, and I hope to qualify much better so that I can be at the front and stay there."
ARON CANET 9th:
“Abbiamo concluso una gara difficile in un weekend difficile in cui abbiamo subito diverse cadute. Siamo riusciti a finire nono, e questa è la parte positiva, perché siamo stati molto costanti durante la gara. La moto in gara non ha avuto niente a che fare con come si è comportata nel warm up di questa mattina: abbiamo avuto problemi e si è riflettuto. Pensavo di poter lottare per le prime posizioni, ma non è stato possibile. Ci riproveremo la prossima volta ".
