De Puniet continues recovery with “toughest” race of the year

De Puniet continues recovery with “toughest” race of the year

The LCR Honda rider placed 13th at Indianapolis in his second race back after a broken leg.

Randy de Puniet rode to 13th in the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix on Sunday as the Frenchman continued to work his way back to full fitness from a broken left leg. The LCR Honda rider admitted after the 28-lap contest that he had found it more physically demanding than his first race back from injury at Brno two weeks previously.

“Honestly this was the toughest race for me since the beginning of the year... even more demanding than Brno!” said De Puniet. “This track has ten left-hand corners and six-right hand corners which make changing direction very punishing.”

“The surface is very bumpy and everybody struggled with grip levels. We tried to get the most from our bike and I even tried to change my riding style but at the end I could not find my pace. I am still holding eighth position in the standings and I am pretty sure that the next race we will be up there once again as I like Misano layout.”
