Impressive sixth in qualifying for De Puniet

Impressive sixth in qualifying for De Puniet

Still recovering from his broken leg the LCR Honda rider defied the pain once more to get himself on the second row at Misano.

LCR Honda rider Randy de Puniet rode to sixth place today in the qualifying session at Misano. After yesterday’s 12th place in practice De Puniet worked with his crew to find the right machine balance for the San Marino track and thanks to the adjustments the Frenchman made solid progress, placing his bike on the second row after the gruelling Indianapolis weekend.

Randy de Puniet - 6th

“It is good to be back up there with the guys! After the bad weekend in Indy I knew that I could bounce back here in Misano because I like this track very much and my leg is getting better day by day. This morning we struggled with the front end in the entry to some corners but we reduced the problem quite a lot. Honestly we are not at 100% yet but I am delighted with this performance. Hopefully if we can make a good start tomorrow we will be able to fight for another positive result. I want to forget the crash, the fracture and the bad luck.”
