Jerez de la Frontera (Spain) 9 June 2019
The sixth round of the Supersport 600 world championship, which has played out at the Circuito Angel Nieto in Jerez de la Frontera, saw Randy Krummenacher reach the podium once more. At 12.15 local time, and in hot conditions, the Supersport race got underway. Randy Krummenacher, who got away from pole, spent two laps in second position before moving to the front of the leading group, a position he retained until lap eleven, when he was passed by team-mate Federico Caricasulo. On lap twelve, Krummenacher regained the lead, holding on to it until three laps from the end when Italian rider Caricasulo moved back out front to take the win, Krummenacher crossing the line second.
Six rounds, three wins and three second-place finishes for Krummenacher so far this season then, the rider demonstrating both consistency and tenacity as he continues to exploit the package that the team provides him with.
Satisfied with his result, the Swiss rider brings home important points and retains the championship lead, seventeen points ahead of his team-mate Caricasulo.
#RK21: “I’m pleased, twenty points are important and allow me to hold my lead. A positive weekend but also a tough one physically-speaking, as I’ve been suffering with arm pain all weekend. It was this that prevented me from giving it my all, particularly through the last laps. We have ten days before we head back out on track and so I’ll focus on getting back in shape in the hope I can be fully fit for round seven at Misano Adriatico over the weekend of 21-23 June. The goal will be to solidify my championship lead and I’ll be working hard with my team to achieve that.”
