HONDA CLAIM ‘MORAL VIC­TORY’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

The Monster En­ergy Honda squad have claimed a ‘moral vic­tory’ in this year’s race, which saw four stage wins and the fastest time over­all not enough to win the race for Spa­niard Joan Barreda (above) after an hour-long penalty for him and his team-mates early in the race for re­fu­elling their CRF450S out­side one of the des­ig­nated areas. But de­spite the re­sults, Barreda, who ended up fin­ish­ing fifth over­all, 45 min­utes be­hind Sam Sun­der­land, says he’s come to terms with the re­sult.

He said: “I did ev­ery­thing I could, but we were un­able to reach the goal. But I feel calm be­cause I’ve given it my best shot.”
