Difficult race in Le Mans after problems with both bikes
May 18th, 2014
It wasn’t a very easy race here in Le Mans this weekend, we had a few dramas before the race, we had problems with the two bikes. Unfortunately in warm up this morning my number one bike had a problem with the engine, we didn’t have enough time to change engines so I had to change bikes. In the race I didn’t feel good on the bike, I had no rear grip and I struggled a lot with wheelie and things I had all weekend. I opted for the harder rear tyre which I think was the wrong decision, I should probably have gone with the soft option which I felt quite good on all weekend but was worried about the movement in the race. We ended up 18th, the first half of the race wasn’t too bad but once the grip ran out I couldn’t get on the power and had no side grip mid corner. I dropped back a bit and tried to keep pace but it wasn’t a lot of fun at the end of the race. The next race is Mugello in Italy, a new track for me, hopefully we can get up to speed and have a good one, see you all there. Click here to watch the full video.
