Bad luck for De Puniet ruins his Valencia race

Bad luck for De Puniet ruins his Valencia race

LCR Honda´s Randy de Puniet was disappointed at the conclusion of the Gran Premio Parts Europe de la Comunitat Valenciana.

A first lap error proved costly for Randy de Puniet at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia on Sunday as he finished the last race of the year in fifteenth place.

Randy de Puniet - fifteenth

`I am very disappointed because I wanted to get a better result in the last race of the season. In the first lap I made a small mistake and had to go wide to avoid James Toseland. At the end of the first lap I was the last rider and lost twelve seconds from the leader. After that I started to push but was impossible to come back. My wrist ached a lot and I did my best to finish the race. Honestly I expected something better because my pace on race trim was fast but now it´s time to work for next season. I want to thank my crew, the Honda and Michelin staff for their good job during this championship.´
