Kallio: “I had a problem with my left arm”

Kallio: “I had a problem with my left arm”

Mika Kallio finished fourth in the race at the Termas de Rio Hondo in Argentina for his Italtrans Racing Team.

Kallio, starting from tenth on the grid, was quickly up and fighting for the podium; eventually finishing just a second behind 3rd placed Sam Lowes.

Mika Kallio:
“In the end it was a good result, which reflected the hard work done over the weekend. A podium finish would have been very welcome, and I wasn’t far off, but half way through the race I had a problem with my left arm; I couldn’t steer with my usual precision and I lost a little time which kept me away from the highest places. We hope to get it at Jerez: the bike behaved well, particularly at the start of the race, while towards the end we lost a little grip. We worked well on the set up for the race.”
