Bradley Smith was four seconds back of his team mate while Mika Kallio who was so strong in the morning warm up was just pipped to the last point. Positively the Finn had a fastest race lap time that showed his ultimate pace. Were in not for a loss of front grip at third distance he would have been much higher.
“After a disappointing Assen we’ve come back to something that we knew, tried and tested with a setting this morning that I felt happier with. In the race I struggled a little bit in the opening ten laps and that’s an area where I personally need to work on plus getting the bike to my kind of feeling, but then after that was when I really started to find my form. I’m pleased with the outcome as it was a proper race with eventually the third KTM only a short gap behind the points. In general, a great weekend for us and the whole KTM project as we’ve learnt an awful lot by having three riders out on track but the great thing is we’re going to go to Aragon now for a two day test with all of us there to continue the progress and keep the ball rolling. Overall I’m pleased with the outcome, putting right last week with a solid performance and finish before we head into part two of the season.”
