Lack of race pace leaves Rodriguez in “no-man’s-land”
Sunday at the British Grand Prix in Silverstone presented the riders with completely different weather conditions than what they had experienced all weekend, with perfect conditions for the sixth Moto2 race of the season to get underway.
The Warm-Up was encouraging for Ángel Rodríguez ahead of the race, the Spaniard improving his best laptime of the weekend by three tenths of a second. On the grid the Desguaces La Torre SAG Team rider opened the gas for a good start, but then slowly faded away and despite posting a fastest lap of 2’09, his best of the weekend, he finished the race in 26th position.
26.ÁNGEL RODRÍGUEZ (DESGUACES LA TORRE SAG TEAM // BIMOTA), 39’32.403:
“Today it was important to get a good start and catch up with the group in front and I managed to do the former, but I couldn’t maintain the pace of the riders in front of me. Little by little I lost ground into no man’s land, riding alone and trying to get a consistent pace, but all the effort wasn’t enough and we didn’t get a good result.”
