Unfortunate crash brings Rosell’s home race to an early end

 In Moto2, News

Elena Rosell felt good on her Moriwaki bike today for the Spanish Moto2 Grand Prix, but ran into bad luck when she got caught out in one of the damp sections of the track and crashed on lap five. Luckily, the only female rider in Grand Prix racing didn’t get hurt and now looks forward to racing again at Estoril next week.

Elena Rosell “I ran into bad luck and crashed in the Nieto corner. In the Moto3 race, a whole bunch of riders has gone down there due to a remaining patch of water, and the same happened to me. I had a highsider and tried to hang on to the bike, but in the end I wasn’t able to save it. I was especially upset and angry about the incident, because I was making progress. I could match the lap times of the guys in front of me and there were many more laps to go in which I could have improved further and gained positions. But then, this corner came and I went down!”
