Bradl Endures Difficult Second Day In Malaysia

1 Mins read

Stefan Bradl revealed his Wednesday testing programme started and ended in difficult circumstances despite setting the sixth fastest time of the day. The LCR Honda rider was eight tenths behind pacesetter Dani Pedrosa as he continued with the electronic and suspension tweaks that he started with on Tuesday but the difficulties for Bradl started that night.

The German revealed he was having trouble sleeping on the night of the first day and was delayed in starting the second day as a result and to make matters worse, Bradl was unable to complete his scheduled work due to rainfall at the end of the day.

This morning I took the track later than the others due to some sleeping issues. Unfortunately I could not sleep properly last night and I started my daily testing program a bit later but it was still a productive day for us. Once I joined the track I could immediately set an acceptable lap time and we proceeded with our rear suspension settings for the major part of the day. After that we decided to go for a 15-lap long run to check my average speed on a longer distance aboard this new bike before the rain interrupted our TO DO list”.
