Alex rides to seventh and eighth on Sunday at #CatalanWorldSBK

 In News

Alex Lowes rode to seventh and eighth place Sunday race finishes at the team’s home round at Montmelo today.

Alex placed seventh in the Superpole race, and started the final race of the weekend from the third row of the grid.

In the second full race of the first ever WorldSBK Catalunya weekend, which started at the unusual time of 15.00, Alex could again not find the feel he needed to compete for the podium places and he finished eighth.

Alex moved up to sixth in the championship from seventh after this weekend.

In two weeks’ time KRT will compete in the penultimate round of the 2020 season, at the French circuit of Magny Cours, between October 2 and October 4.

Alex Lowes:
“Obviously this was a bit of a disappointing day for me. I gave absolutely 100% but I did not have the feeling I needed on the bike. We could not get the setting right to give me the confidence to push like we expected. It was a shame to have a difficult weekend as I had a lot of confidence after the last round, where I was feeling ill but still managed to get fifth and sixth places. We need to analyse what happened now and refocus on Magny Cours in a couple of weeks’ time to get back fighting at the front. That is the target for me now.”
