Hernandez Proud After Career Best Result At Laguna Seca

1 Mins read

Yonny Hernandez is delighted with the continued progress being made by Avintia Blusens after a double points finish in the U.S. Grand Prix. The Colombian claimed the best result of his rookie season with twelfth place and is hopeful of improving further when MotoGP resumes in three weeks.

“I am really happy with the result and also our pace for the majority of the race today. For the first twenty laps we were in the low 1’24s but unfortunately after that I started to lose rear grip and couldn’t keep it up. It means we have work to do with the new rear shock and swingarm but the potential is there to see and I am delighted with the way the whole package has worked at this track. We have finished as the third CRT with my best result of the season at a circuit I have never ridden at before this weekend so we can be proud of our performance I think. Hopefully we can take another step forward at Indianapolis in three weeks’ time and get closer to that battle to be the top CRT.”

Teammate Ivan Silva scored two points for fourteenth but was disappointed to finish behind CRT rival Colin Edwards after a close fight throughout.

“I had a nice battle with Colin throughout most of the race and it was a shame we couldn’t keep it going to the end because we were lapped by the lead riders and had to back off. Still, fourteenth place is a positive result for us and we have scored a couple of important points for the championship. Now we need to build on the progress we have made with the bike here and try to be more competitive at Indianapolis.”
