without any doubt the LCR racer Stefan Bradl was hoping for a different race at the crowded Misano circuit with more than 54.000 fans celebrating Valentino Rossi’s extraordinary victory. Bradl failed to challenge the front riders as he fell out in lap seven. As happened in Mugello, the German was not able to perform as expected but he luckily escaped unhurt from the accident and will be back in action at Aragon circuit in less than two weeks.
Stefan: “I am very disappointed because we crashed in a very good situation. The race was good from the beginning because I took a good start from the forth row. I saw that I was faster than Aleix Espargaro but it took a while to pass him. Finally I made it and managed to close the gap with the front group quickly but suddenly, in turn 13 in a left corner, I lost the front. I am very sorry because the whole Team made an excellent job this weekend especially for Lucio. We could have done a good job finishing in 5th or 6th place because our lap time was quite fast”.
