Barbera: “We touched a little bit, but this is racing”

Avintia Racing’s Hector Barbera only just missed out on the Open class victory after a race long battle with Jack Miller.

Only 0.075s separated the Spaniard from the Australian rider, but the most important thing is that Barbera still leads the Open Class standings, only two weeks before arriving to Jerez.

Hector Barbera:
“I was struggling during all the weekend as this track has a special kind of grip. I started the race from a good position and that helped me, but during the race I had some grip issues. I’ve been fighting with Miller from mid race and in the last lap we passed each other three or four times. I braked perfectly for the last corner and I got the inside line, but he still crossed the line first. We touched a little bit, but this is racing and I want to congratulate him because he beat me. I’m angry because we were very close of making three out of three, but the level in this category is very high and this gives me more motivation for Jerez.”
