Folger: “I lost all my energy in the race”

Folger: “I lost all my energy in the race”

Jonas Folger battles the crushing heat of the Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix to secured third, unable to do anything more.

Throughout the Malaysian GP weekend, Jonas Folger looked to be one of the few riders who could stay with the likes of Johann Zarco and Thomas Luthi. A crash during Qualifying setting the AGR Team rider back somewhat, but he came strong in the race and comfortably chasing Alex Rins for third. With ten laps to go Rins fell at Turn 9 and gifted Folger third, the German focusing on simply maintaining his race as he heat beat down on him. As soon as the race was done Folger unzipped his leathers, breathing a sigh of relief as the cool breeze hit his chest on the cool down lap. In parc ferme it was clear to see that Folger had given his all in the race.

Jonas Folger: “Really tough I am at the end now. I have no reserves; I lost all my energy in the race. It was a great race and I tried to stay with Rins but he crashed. It was a lonely race. Really really tough.”
