04 Jun MotoGP – Jerez – 06/05/18
MotoGP, Jerez is hot, very hot, in particular for Nolan Group riders!
The first European race of the Moto GP world championship saw Nolan Group riders fighting for the top spot in all classes, even if, in some cases they didn’t quite hit the targets they had set themselves.
Alex Rins in MotoGP crashed while he was fighting at the top with the very best, so unfortunate for him! It was then up to Danilo Petrucci to fight for the podium, a target he came so close to achieving after a hard fought race, grabbing 4th place.
Not much to talk about in Moto2 but meanwhile in Moto3, Lopez and Kornfeil grabbed 4th and 8th respectively after two exciting races.
Now France, with the Le Mans race. The expected rain is a pain for technicians and riders alike. But not for our X-803RR, its water resistance has now been tested by years of experience in the race and on the roads around the world.
Take a look at our range! No doubt you will find the right helmet for you at the best price possible for a helmet made it Italy.
Danilo Petrucci FOURTH
“It was a good race but it’s clear I have a bit of bitterness in my mouth. I thought I could attack Iannone a few laps earlier but I had to defend myself from Valentino. However, I am very happy with this result and I would like to thank the whole team for the extraordinary work they have done this weekend”.
Alonso Lopez FOURTH
“I was climbing positions in the race and I had reached the seventh place, but I had a complication with the left glove and, having the rear brake in that hand, I had some problems stopping the bike. I waited and soon after I started to pull hard. When four or five laps were missing I went for all. I managed to overtake several riders and when I went to overtake Jorge [Martín] I entered very close. I saw possibilities of entering with my motorcycle, but at that moment the direction made me a stranger and when Jorge [Martín] closed his career, I could not brake correctly and I caused his fall and those of Tony Arbolino and Enea Bastianini. I want to apologize to all of them; there are mistakes that should not be made. I am so sorry”.
Jakub Kornfeil EIGHTH
“It was a very difficult day for me today. I struggled a lot because of the allergy I’ve been facing. I saw the last part of the race and must admit, I wasn’t very active in the group. To breathe correctly was impossible and every single move I was going to make cost a terrible amount of energy. I’m so happy we have turned not so great qualifying into another valuable top ten finish and scored some points.”
