Podium and front row run ends for Sete

Podium and front row run ends for Sete

Sete Gibernau's crash in the Cinzano Rio Grand Prix on Sunday ended a stunning run of consistency for the Spanish rider. Gibernau has been on top form ever since he took victory in the second round of the 2003 season and, other than a crash in the following race at Jerez, he has never been out of the top seven in twenty races since then.

Gibernau stepped up his game considerably at the start of the 2004 season to carry the championship challenge to Valentino Rossi. From the opening six rounds of the season Gibernau qualified on the front row at every one of them, including three pole positions, and maintained a 100% podium record.

However, fourth place on the grid and a ‘dnf' in the Brazilian race destroyed both of those records, as well as ensuring that the Spaniard was unable to open up a clear points gap over Rossi, who also crashed, at the top of the standings.
