Miller: “I got a little nudge from someone”

Miller: “I got a little nudge from someone”

CWM LCR Honda’s Jack Miller unfortunately crashed out of the Motul TT Assen on the first lap.

It was a quick end to Miller’s maiden Dutch TT in the MotoGP™ World Championship, as the Australian was involved in a melee at the final chicane on the first lap, which saw him crash out of contention.

After a positive weekend of practice, Miller had been disappointed with his qualifying position of 20th place, however he had been confident of making up spots in the race. Sadly, as he tried to make up positions into the last corner, he lost traction and ended up in the gravel.

Jack Miller: “I got a really good start and had a small touch with Eugene Laverty off the line, but after that I recovered. Coming into the last corner I tried to pass Bautista but my rear tyre overtook my front tyre and I got a little nudge from someone. It was unfortunate because I felt quite good here all weekend and my pace wasn’t so bad, so to end it like this was a shame. We are working hard every week, and I look forward to getting back to racing at Sachsenring. I’m more disappointed about losing the experience of racing here, we’ve missed out on a lot of laps and we are here to make laps. If we kep working hard I’m sure we can do a great job in Germany next time.”
