Remy Gardner takes encouraging steps forward as Le Mans weekend gets underway
Remy Gardner took some encouraging steps forward today in France as he bounces back from his ankle injury. The young Australian completed the afternoon practice in 26th after producing a confidence boosting performance in the wet and tomorrow he intends to make a further step up aboard the Mistral 610.
“In general, I am feeling better on the bike and I am definitely making progress after my injury. FP2 was really wet, but it started to dry towards the end, yet I gained a lot of confidence back in terms of riding in the rain so I am happy about this. I think that I could have done a better job in that practice, but some other riders held me up on my final lap, which is a shame. However, the feeling is definitely coming back and I am more comfortable on my bike so we will see how it goes tomorrow.”
