EARLY EXIT FOR DE PUNIET AT THE GERMAN GP

Sachsenring, 19 July: The ninth round of the season at Sachsenring race track was conducted in the dry despite cloudy skies and some light rain in the morning but LCR Honda MotoGP Team rider Randy De Puniet did not finish the race crashing out on lap one. After yesterday's good qualifying when De Puniet got the 6th quickest time of the day riding his Honda RC212V no. 14, the 28-year-old made a good start from the second row and was third when he crashed out in the gravel.

Luckily Randy escaped unhurt from the accident and will be back on track with his crew next week end at Donington Park race track. Rossi won the German GP followed by his team mate Lorenzo and Pedrosa.

De Puniet -- OUT: "I am very disappointed because I took a good start and was in third position behind Pedrosa. After that I made a mistake in the first right corner because I opened the throttle to early suffering a big highside. Anyway I feel lucky as I escaped unhurt from the crash but this is bad for me and the Team especially for the championship. We could finish in the top five as we had the speed to make an amazing race. However I am still holding the 10th position and we will start again from zero in Donington".
