Week­end to for­get for Mcphee

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Moto3 front-run­ner John Mcphee had a week­end to for­get at Jerez af­ter a se­ries of er­rors com­pounded to give the Scots­man his worst re­sult of the sea­son. Strug­gling through­out the three days and start­ing Sun­day’s race from a dis­tant 26th place, he even­tu­ally crashed out of the fight for 12th.

Speak­ing to MCN, Mcphee said: “Noth­ing re­ally went to plan. It all stemmed from the tyre is­sue in qual­i­fy­ing which just meant lack of laps and lack of time to test the bike and get up to speed.”

De­spite all the prob­lems at Jerez, Mcphee re­tains both fourth in the cham­pi­onship stand­ings and a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude as he goes to Le Mans look­ing to put the week­end be­hind him.

“Ev­ery­one has dif­fi­cult week­ends and it wasn’t a to­tal dis­as­ter. We know we can be at the front ev­ery sin­gle week, I wasn’t do­ing any­thing wrong with my rid­ing, the team did a good job all week­end but it just didn’t come to­gether in the end.”
