Miller: “The tyre was destroyed by the end of the race”

Miller: “The tyre was destroyed by the end of the race”

CWM LCR Honda’s Jack Miller wins the Open class battle in Argentina for the first time in his MotoGP™ career.

Jack Miller finally showed his potential in his debut season as a MotoGP rider, as the CWM LCR Honda man took 12th place in the Grand Prix of Argentina and came home as the top Open class rider across the line.

The Australian had started the race from a lowly 21st position on the grid, but as has now become customary in his fledging MotoGP career, he quickly made up positions, and was battling well within the points scoring spots.

Having dispensed of former world champion Nicky Hayden, Miller also made it past Stefan Bradl, with just the Ducati of Hector Barbera standing in his way of becoming top Open man. Miller conjured up some of his usual magic in the final corner of the race, slotting his Honda RC213V-RS underneath the Spaniard to take four points and the honour of top Open bike for the first time in his rookie year.

Jack Miller:
“It was a great day today, we are always making steps forward and I am so happy to see things progress like this. Step by step we are getting closer to the front. Today it was so hot out on track and the tyre was really destroyed by the end of the race, we were sliding about so much. I can’t thank the CWM LCR Honda Team enough for giving me the bike I needed. We needed to do a lot of work in the warm up to get it where we needed it for the race, so I’m absolutely delighted.”
