Zarco fights to the end

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

While he might not have had the beat­ing of Cal Crutchlow come the end of Sun­day’s race, French­man Jo­hann Zarco was able to take yet an­other im­pres­sive podium on the Mon­ster Yamaha Tech 3 bike to show­case just why he’s re­port­edly in line for a fac­tory KTM seat come 2019.

“From the start, there were not so many op­tions for the best line, but be­hind Dani I felt I was stuck, so fi­nally I did the ma­noeu­vre and tried to over­take him. Be­cause of the con­di­tions I went a lit­tle bit wide, but that was the way to pass him. I’m sorry that he crashed there. Over­all it was a very dif­fi­cult race today, and I was al­most crash­ing all the time. In fight­ing with Cal, I didn’t want to do a mis­take, so in the end, he de­served this win today.”
