The Sachsenring was a very tough race. An unexpected heat has really limited the performance of some riders. Bradl paid the price, with an overheated motorcycle that even burned him. Rins absent due to a hand injury, Canet in difficulty, after a car accident on Saturday evening, the hopes of the Nolan Group riders in Moto2 are concentrated on Gonzalez and Aldeguer. The latter achieved a magnificent fifth place which marks his return to the club of the fastest.
And now? After the unexpected German heat, we expect the coolness of Assen! In the meantime, don't give up on the bike if it's hot. There is the right helmet waiting for you!
STEFAN BRADL: 16th
"Today is a sad day, I had a big issue with riding the bike in this heat. After following people for the first few corners, I couldn’t brake because my right hand, the lever, became so hot and I couldn’t control the bike. After a couple of laps, I had to drop back to get some fresh air for the bike and for my body. I just tried to finish the race, it was physically more than on the limit and I also have a burn on my right foot because it was so hot. It’s not acceptable to have this situation, we need to improve it. Luckily in Assen we have a chance to fix this problem."
FERMIN ALDEGUER: 5th
"Magnificent race! Starting from the thirteenth position we climbed back up to the fifth! Our pace was to win or at least 100% for the podium, but obviously having to recover a lot of seconds and when I reached the first group I couldn't go any further. However, I am really very happy with the work done this weekend, we have found confidence, having fun on the bike and this is the most important thing!"
ARON CANET: 9th
"The way I approached the race, after my latest vicissitudes, I'm happy all in all. It was difficult but we took home a good race and important points.
I'll be back stronger than ever."
MANUEL GONZALEZ: 12th
I am very happy about how the race went.
I had a difficult firrst lap, some riders were slow in front of me and I lost two positions. From there I started to recover really fast, overtaking 8 riders.
My pace was fast and I was controlling the limit of the bike.
I'm very positive for Assen because we are working in the good way, race after race.
And I like a lot that circuit!
