Aoyama continues recovery with 13th

Aoyama continues recovery with 13th

The Interwetten Honda MotoGP rider was not satisfied with his result of 13th at Aragón but it was another step in his return to full fitness.

Hiroshi Aoyama rounded off the Gran Premio A-Style de Aragón weekend with 13th position in the race, as the Interwetten Honda MotoGP Team rider continues to work his way back to full fitness.

The race was a challenge for the Japanese rider who managed to score some Championship points with his result, but will be aiming for more when he heads to his home GP in Japan after a weekend off.

Hiroshi Aoyama – 13th

“As you can understand I am not really happy about the 13th position. My rhythm was good when I was riding alone. At the beginning I lost a lot of time and I could have been faster if I would have overtaken Kallio earlier. I tried it in each corner, but couldn’t. When I finally passed him, because he made a mistake, it was too late to improve the result and I am very angry about that.”

Daniel M. Epp – Team Manager

“I am glad that we went through this weekend without a crash. It’s exactly three months ago that Hiro had his big accident where he hurt himself badly. In two weeks he will have his home race and I think if he arrives there with the knowledge that he doesn’t have to worry about his back anymore, he will get a stronger result.”
