Lowes: “I feel okay…and I am really happy!”

Lowes: “I feel okay…and I am really happy!”

Speed Up Racing's Sam Lowes finished day one of practice in Austin fastest, despite suffering from a horrific crash in FP2.

The British rider managed to top both Free Practice session to carry on his form from Qatar which saw him grab pole position. Unfortunately he also suffered a nasty crash in each session, with the rider lucky to have walked away from the second one.

Sam Lowes:
“I feel okay, while it’s not good to crash, but for me last year on this track was not good for me, so I pushed a lot in the first dry session we had, as maybe tomorrow it will rain. I feel really good on the bike, I have a small injury to my foot but I think it will be okay! In the wet and the dry I feel good, and before today I thought this track would be a big problem for me, because last year was not good, but in the first session I made 14 laps on the same tyre and I was fast, for this I am really happy!”
