De Puniet enjoys Bologna visit

De Puniet enjoys Bologna visit

LCR Honda´s French MotoGP star Randy de Puniet was an enthusiastic guest at the Bologna motorshow this weekend.

Randy de Puniet took part in an Xtreme Supermoto race at the Bologna motorshow over the weekend, thoroughly enjoying the experience onboard a Honda 450CRF despite some bad weather at the event and coming home in eighth position.

The 27-year-old also met fans and signed autographs at the show before commenting, `I enjoyed myself very much during these two days. The bad weather conditions slowed down our pace but it was good training for me. The guys here are very fast because they have competed in the Supermoto championship for a long time and I never expected to end in the top ten.´

`We suffered some light slides during the races but luckily everybody escaped unhurt from the incidents. I think it was a very exciting show for the spectators and I hope to be here again next year. I was able to test the condition of my wrist during the races and I can finally say that it is fixed. Our next winter test session will be held in Sepang in the first week of February so I will keep on training until that date, even on supermoto bikes.´
