Abraham reviews top-ten battle at Le Mans

The Cardion AB Motoracing rookie took tenth place in the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France, having enjoyed a battle with Héctor Barberá, Toni Elías and Álvaro Bautista.

Czech rider Karel Abraham completed a successful race and finished in tenth position in the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France on Sunday.

Abraham had a good start and fought with four other riders for ninth position. While Loris Capirossi crashed out of the race, Abraham overtook two riders and finished tenth, just 0.183s ahead of Toni Elías and 0.307s ahead of Álvaro Bautista.

“It was a great race. I fought with four other riders and finished tenth,“ said Abraham. “I am satisfied with the result. The gap between me and the winner was bigger than I expected, and I hope that in the next race I will be able to do even better.”
