De Puniet escapes further injury in Aragón fall

De Puniet escapes further injury in Aragón fall

The LCR Honda rider was unharmed after crashing out of the Gran Premio A-Style de Aragón on Sunday, but was frustrated by his DNF.

Randy de Puniet’s continued efforts to work his way back to competitiveness as soon as possible went unrewarded at Aragón on Sunday when the LCR Honda rider crashed out of the Round 13 race.

Having qualified in sixth place in only his fourth race back after breaking his leg in mid July the Frenchman was going well throughout the weekend, and was battling for a top-eight finish when his race was ended prematurely on the 16th lap.

“It’s another disappointing race for me after Indianapolis and Misano,” said De Puniet, who has been working hard on his fitness. “I had a very good rhythm here and thought that I could have a positive race scoring important points. I did not make a good start and after five laps I had front tyre grip issues and tried hard to manage the problem, losing several places.”

“Then with eight laps to go on turn seven I made a mistake and I suffered a high side. I am okay but I am in a bad mood because the last two months have been very tough for me. The first part of the season was incredibly positive for me and the team and I hope to be back on my pace in the next races.”
