Remy powers through the pain on opening day at Jerez
Remy Gardner, who is bravely contesting the Spanish Grand Prix despite still suffering from a severe ankle injury, produced a valiant effort to complete the second practice in 29th on a day of mixed conditions at the Jerez circuit.
“I am definitely happy to be back on my bike and I certainly have missed it! Having said that, today’s result is not great, but I am staying positive and we are doing all that what we can. I think that I can climb up the standings and bring home a half decent result on Sunday so we have to keep working. My ankle is painful and it gets really tired after a while, plus it bleeds where they made the cut, yet, we’ve just got to push through and do our best so I will stay determined.”
