DNF at the #GermanGP for Joan Mir
Team Suzuki Ecstar endured another tough race day when Alex Rins was ruled out of starting the German GP due to injury and Joan Mir crashed out early from the gruelling 30 lap race.
A bumper crowd were ready to cheer on the riders at Sachsenring circuit amidst a scorching heatwave which saw air temperatures of 35 degrees Celsius and track temperatures of 50 degrees. The long race on such a physically-demanding track was always going to be a tough ask, but Mir felt prepared and ready following a strong display of race pace on Saturday.
Starting from 12th on the grid, Mir got a clean start but was mired down in the pack with a formidable group around him. Nevertheless, he was hoping to keep his head down and work his way up the order, but his ambitions were halted at the start of Lap 4 when he went down at the infamous Turn 1. The GSX-RR rider is uninjured and ready to turn his attention to Assen next weekend.
