RANDY KRUMMENACHER CRASHES OUT IN ROUND ONE OF THE FIM SUPERSPORT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Phillip Island (Australia) 01 March 2020
The opening round of the FIM Supersport world championship draws to a less than positive conclusion for Randy Krummenacher at the Australian circuit of Phillip Island.
At 1.15pm local time the lights went out on the first race of the 2020 season. From second on the grid, Krummenacher failed to make a good start, losing several positions as a result. The MV Agusta Reparto Corse rider opted for a wider line into turn one, thinking he could make up ground to his rivals. His strategy unfortunately did not pay off though, and the Swiss rider crashed, unable to resume his race.
The current world champion nevertheless remains positive and is already looking ahead, aware that the season has only just begun and that there are still many points to play for.
#RK1: “I’m of course disappointed to have finished the weekend in this way, as it had all been going very positively. I’ve worked hard with the team and we had the potential to really fight for the race win today. Unfortunately, I made a mistake off the line and, to make up the lost ground, I decided to take a wider line into turn one, but this caused me to crash and I was unable to continue. I’m sorry it finished like this, but nothing is compromised. The weekend was useful in terms of setting up my MV Agusta F3-675; we’ve learned a lot. The season’s only just begun, and I have time to catch up. Particular thanks to the team for all their hard work here.”
