Remy remains determined after tough Jerez qualifying day
Injured Remy Gardner endured a challenging day in Andalucía after falling twice in the hot 45-minute practice. The young Australian’s qualifying performance will see him start from the 10th row of the grid as he resolutely looks on to tomorrow.
“It was a tough qualifying session even though I did what I could. In the end, I wasn’t able to go any faster than in FP3 and the track was hot, plus my ankle is still painful. I had a small crash but I picked the bike up and tried to continue. However, after that, a couple of riders were off the pace and sitting up in the last corner, but I came in at the normal speed and I had to stand the bike up. Unfortunately, as I did this I clipped the back of Marquez, which broke the chain of my bike and I couldn’t run anymore. It has been a difficult weekend but we won’t give up and tomorrow we will try our best.”
