Dovizioso dissatisfied despite achieving objective

Dovizioso dissatisfied despite achieving objective

Tyre troubles hit Andrea Dovizioso in the Czech Republic, but he was still the first Michelin rider home.

Andrea Dovizioso achieved his goal of being the first Michelin rider to cross the line at Brno, but was still left wanting more.

Andrea Dovizioso - Ninth

`My goal for the race was to be the first Michelin rider home, which is what I have achieved, but things were too difficult to do better. I started fully motivated and wanting to give the maximum and exploit fully the material at our disposal, but today I cannot be satisfied with the result. I had difficulty with the front tyre and was forced to change my style of riding, which meant not being able to exploit my speed in the corners. I had to stop hard and fire the bike out of the corners, rather than have a smoother style. This difficulty penalised us in the race.´
