Lowes in a hot spot

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Alex Lowes was the other half of the fire­ball in­ci­dent at Imola, and had a dif­fer­ent view­point from Laverty af­ter their high-pro­file con­tact and af­ter­math. “It is a dif­fi­cult one with Eu­gene,” said Lowes af­ter a day think­ing about it and hav­ing fin­ished race one eighth and gone sixth on day two. “Ob­vi­ously I went to see him af­ter the first race to get his opin­ion. I passed him and I felt like he should have seen me be­cause I was more than a full bike length in front of him, so ob­vi­ously he could see me. The main thing is that he is OK and we will sort it out be­tween us. There is no need for this or that. It was such a nasty crash, I am happy he is al­right and he had a good race to­day, so all is okay.”

The whole Pata WSB team ef­fort has been rejuvenated in 2017, even if Du­cati and Kawasaki are still un­touch­able, but at Imola it was a step back­wards for Lowes. “We have made progress at ev­ery track this year ex­cept this one. We have strug­gled for some rea­son. It will take a bit of anal­y­sis to find out why.”
