What Kenny Roberts Jr Says
Points leader Valentino Rossi crashed not only on the sighting lap, but also on the last lap of the race. Bikes and riders were falling everywhere. Here's what Kenny Jr. had to say about the race...
"When Abe came by me, I had a problem with my visor fogging, and it was verydifficult to see anything. I was trying to be cautious, then at the end I foundI was getting closer and I started pushing. I started to catch Barros. Icouldn't see much on the front straight, and basically I made a mistake at theend of the straightaway. At least I was racing for victory instead of sixthplace! Before the race Michelin suggested we use a 16.5-inch tire because it wasbetter in the wet, and now I believe they were right."
Team Manager, Garry Taylor opined, " Kenny was (also) struggling to see where hewas going. The important thing is he walked away from it without any injuries."
