Pedrosa had a bad day at Assen
Pedrosas second bike had various problems from the start
REPSOL Honda’s Dani Pedrosa had a ‘bad day’ at the Dutch TT Grand Prix and admitted that his second bike was not up to standard.
Pedrosa crossed the line in eighth on Saturday despite a disastrous start, which left him battling through the pack. In the morning warm-up, Pedrosa crashed out damaging his number one bike and therefore had to race hi second bike which had problems.
"It was a bad day,” explained Pedrosa.
“I had a very strange crash in the morning: I was going straight, braking, and the tires were already up to temperature - but I lost the front without warning.
“Unfortunately the bike was damaged, then I took off my glove and saw I had cut my finger but I was still able to return for the race. I had to use my second bike and I had a problem with it, because when I released the clutch at the start the bike did not react.
“I had to release it completely and began to slide. I went from fourth to thirteenth and I lost many positions, but in addition I also had a problem with the brakes.
“I tried to adjust it but I could not control the bike under braking. It was very difficult to adapt, but in the end I managed to make up some places. However, I couldn’t brake well and on the last lap Crutchlow took me out on the chicane and I lost more positions."
The Spaniard remains tenth in the championship standings after a difficult day at the office.
