Bradley Smith finishes in the points
Posted on Sep 20, 2020 by George Penny
Bradley Smith rode a prudent race, trying not to lag too far behind the central part of the group and, aided by several crashes ahead of him, finished thirteenth to earn championship points, also bringing race experience and miles home to the very young 2020 RS-GP project.
"The final result is okay, but I'm a bit disappointed with the wide gap behind the leader. The first stage of the race wasn’t bad and I was able to stay with the group. But today we started with an entirely different setting and I didn’t know what to expect, so the last 10 laps were rather difficult. These have been two peculiar weeks for us, with a lot of different sensations. I’ll take the good from the first 16 laps, done at a good pace, and we’ll have to start from them to tackle a vastly different track like Barcelona."
