MICHELIN ENDURES TOUGH DAY AT BRNO

Michelin had a difficult day at Brno today, Andrea Dovizioso (JiR Team Scot Honda RC212V-Michelin) and Jorge Lorenzo (Fiat Yamaha Team YZR-M1-Michelin) the company's top riders in ninth and tenth positions.

"First of all, we must say thank you to our riders and also to the teams for the work they have done over the weekend trying to help us as much as they could," said Jean-Philippe Weber, Michelin's director of motorcycle racing. "Obviously we are very upset with the performance of our tyres and the results we achieved today. We knew it was going to be extremely difficult for our riders because we have struggled with front-tyre performance since Friday. We therefore knew that our riders would really struggle with the front tyre during the race. Now we need to understand the problems we faced here, w here we also struggled last year. We have to make a big improvement to our performance at tracks like Brno. Now we will do our maximum to prepare in the best way possible for the next race at Misano, which is a different track and a different challenge."
