Tommy Searle said the Dutch GP at Valkenswaard was: “A weekend to forget! Looking forward to better result’s next weekend in Italy. ” In timed practice he was 17th, then 19th in qualification, with 24th and 18th places in the motos.
“Tommy Searle showed some skills, the bike is lighter, more powerful than last year, and the chassis was working well. But sometimes it’s not enough,”explained team boss Steven Bossard.“It’s hard to swallow and I feel bad for the rider.”
“I’m disappointed. In the Netherlands the riding style of Tommy and the bike were ok, but bad starts, bad technical choices and mistakes made us bring back just 3 small points….It’s one of the toughest weekend of the year for me,” said team owner Olivier Bossard.
“It’s time to regroup and think about Arco di Trento, the Italian round next week.”
