Pe­drosa has a bumpy ride

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Crash­ing out of the race with an al­most-iden­ti­cal crash to team­mate Mar­quez, Dani Pe­drosa was per­haps quicker to iden­tify the ex­act cause of Sun­day’s crash, putting it down to the bumps that the riders say have got a lot worse since their last visit to the Ter­mas de Rio Hondo cir­cuit.

“I was feel­ing good on the bike and wanted to close the gap on the oth­ers to fight for the podium, but un­for­tu­nately I crashed. There are a lot of bumps in that turn, and they cre­ate a tricky sit­u­a­tion, as the grip is kind of on-off. When you’re push­ing re­ally hard, the limit be­comes quite nar­row. Of course it’s a shame about the crash, but on the other hand I’m happy I felt good enough to try and chase down the front group.”
