Laverty: “Today has been a bit of a tough day for us”

Laverty: “Today has been a bit of a tough day for us”

Eugene Laverty admits it was a tough day at the Catalan GP as he crashed twice and will have to start the race from 22nd on the grid.

Laverty has to dust himself down from two crashes today. The Irishman thankfully emerged unscathed from both, and will attempt to make up ground on the rest of the Open class rider during Sunday’s race.

Eugene Laverty: “Today has been a bit of a tough day for us, with two crashes – one in turn five and one in turn three. The first one was stupid and I am annoyed about it, the second one I lost the front. We have worked hard all weekend on the rear but we are still having some problems. Both bikes are similar but I prefer my number one machine and after the crash I had to go into qualifying on the second one. Yesterday was positive and we found some solutions but today wasn't as straightforward. Hopefully we can turn things around tomorrow and enjoy the race.”
