Magny-Cours (France) 30 September 2018
The curtain comes down on the final European round of the Supersport world championship taking place at the French track of Magny-Cours. At 1.45pm local time, under sunny skies and with a temperature of around 21°C, the lights went on and the tenth race of the season got underway, playing out over 19 laps. Randy Krummenacher, who got away from fifth place, made a good start but then lost a few positions, before making up the lost ground in the final stages of the race, to cross the line in fifth place. He thus scores eleven points which see him move into third place in the general standings with a total of 140 points. The Team Bardahl Evan Bros. rider is satisfied, despite having had to overcome difficulties in the first ten laps. The aim is to return to the podium and finish the season in the best possible way.
#RK21: “I leave the circuit one place further ahead in the standings than I was after Portimao. I was fourth on the same points as the third-placed rider and now I’m third, eight points ahead of fourth. It wasn’t an easy race, especially at the start, but I’m pleased because I gave it my all and couldn’t have done more. After lap ten, I started to pick up the pace, lapping with times similar to those of the leading group, but by then I was too far back to be able to reach them. We have two races left to run, at San Juan, in Argentina on 14 October and then Qatar on 27 October. I’m confident and my aim is to get back to the podium, I hope to do just that and round out the 2018 season as well as possible”.
