What Happened to Ben Bostrom?
Ben Bostrom had been expected to challenge for the win on the high-speed Monza circuit, but he had to retire fromrace 1 with transmission failure on lap 11. Ben had even more misfortune after the break, when he was slowed by electricalgremlins throughout race 2.
"It hasn't been a good weekend at all for me. We had a small problem in Superpole when we shouldeasily have been on top" he said. "In the first race the bike had a small transmission problem that started in morning practiceand we were unable to find it really for the first race. Then in race 2 an electrical problem started about half-way through lap 1,it was probably something simple. The bike ran well for one lap and we did the second quickest time of the race. All I can say isthat the bike was set-up perfect and was definitely a front-runner, minus the gremlins. I think it could have won the secondrace for sure".
