Rain in Spain a pain for home rider Lorenzo

Rain in Spain a pain for home rider Lorenzo

Jorge Lorenzo placed third in practice for the final race of the season.

Third in practice for the Gran Premio de la Comunitat Valenciana, Jorge Lorenzo was nonetheless disappointed with the weather conditions that greeted his homecoming. The Spaniard was running a special livery on Friday, as he will do for the entire weekend.

Jorge Lorenzo - Third

`It´s a pity to be coming to Spain in the rain but anyway we made a good start today and I am quite happy. This morning was very wet and it was quite difficult to ride, but this afternoon the conditions were a bit better and I was able to be quite a lot faster and also do some good work on the set-up of my bike. My Michelin tyres are working well in the rain and I think we can make some more progress tomorrow if it´s like this again, although of course I hope for sunshine! It´s nice to be back in Europe but it´s very busy for a Spanish rider at Spanish race and I have to have a lot of time for everybody! I have a special livery on my bike, which I like very much; it has the flags of all the countries where I have won and was designed by a member of the public in an Italian competition. It´s all of ‘Lorenzo's Lands'!´
