 In News

In the race for the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France Luis Salom achieved a tenth place. In the dry race the RW Racing GP rider couldn’t stay connected with the group battling for third position.

The warm-up session on Sunday morning went well for the Spaniard Luis Salom. Salom rode fast lap times and was even halfway through the session on the top of the timesheets. After a short pit stop the Spaniard rode another two laps and ended the session in seventh position.

The race was held under dry circumstances. The wind was stronger than the days before which made it more difficult riding alone. Salom had a good start and came into sixth place in the first lap. The young Spaniard was in the group that fought for the podium positions and could retain in this group the first eight laps. Halfway through the race the pace dropped for Salom, and the Spaniard dropped back to an eighth place. In a battle for eighth position with local hero Johan Zarco, Salom fell back to the nineth place. In the last part of the race fellow country man Sergio Gadea passed the RW Racing GP rider and Salom had to be satisfied with a tenth position. With this position Salom grabbed sixth point for the championship.

Luis Salom (10th): “My start was excellent and I could keep the pace of the group in front well. After a lap or eight it became increasingly difficult to stay in the group and I couldn’t hold the pace of them. I tried to keep the connection but I made ​​some mistakes. It was hard just to ride the same lap times especially since the wind was much stronger today. I’m not satisfied with this tenth position. We have to work hard if we want to battle for a top 5 position the next races. The team and I will try our best and I’m confident that we will have some races this season which we can battle for a top position.”
