MotoGP 2015 - Qatar

March 30, 2015 Share itShare on Facebook

LOSAIL - Thrilling from the start to the finish. That could be the perfect definition of the 2015 MotoGP opening round. Fluctuating for the CWM LCR Honda Team riders though.

Cal Crutchlow had to start from the 12th grid position, after a crash during the qualifying tests last Saturday. However, after an excellent start, the Briton gradually began to pick up the pace and overtook the riders who were preceding him. The rear grip difficulties thwarted him from sticking to the Honda Factory duo Marquez and Pedrosa, but despite that, he came home as the top satellite rider across the line in the seventh place, with six factory bikes ahead.

The Australian Jack Miller improved his pace steadily throughout the race, but having started from a difficult 22nd position on the grid, he had to fight an uphill battle. Having impressively closed the Gap on the other Honda riders Eugene Laverty and Karel Abraham, when dicing for 18th position, he and the Czech rider crashed out.

Good luck from the entire Rizoma Team to the CWM LCR Honda Team for the next round in Austin, Texas, coming in two weeks.
