Misery for Speed Master’s Pasini in Germany

Tuesday, 10 July 2012

Speed Master’s Mattia Pasini suffered a disappointing weekend at the Sachsenring as the Italian crashed out of the race early on.

Pasini, who had started from the fourteenth spot on the grid, didn’t have the opportunity to repeat the great result he achieved in the preceding Assen round. The Italian was in a group with the other CRT machines, when on the fifth lap he was pushed outside the track by another rider, which made him crash and consequently retire.

Pasini, however, will be leaving any negative thoughts behind him as he heads to his home race in Mugello this coming weekend, hoping for a chance to make up for the day’s result. With twelve points, Pasini currently holds fifteenth position in the General Classification.

"It’s a shame how this weekend ended. Things were going better, and for the race we had managed to find a solution that helped us be more competitive on board the ART machine. We knew we had a consistent rhythm and that we had the chance to fight among the other CRT bikes, I was just waiting for the second part of the race to try and move up a few positions. On the fifth lap another rider made me crash and the race ended that way. Now we leave this GP behind and look towards Mugello, our home race, and we’ll see if we can make up points there."
