Tom Luthi third podium in a row and second in championship

Tom Luthi showed once again during the weekend of the Gran Premi de Catalunya how much of a fighter he is as he finished the third Grand Prix in a row on the podium. Luthi finished after a spectacular race on the second place and he is now in second position in the world championship with 94 points. The young Swiss had, only one week after his surgery on a broken left collarbone, a great and strong Grand Prix weekend and he showed once again that he has the pedigree of a world champion.

Tom Luthi, 2 -- 41'47.488:
"The whole weekend was hard and brutally hot. With the fresh operation it was not always a nice feeling. We still had a good weekend and could start the race from first row and I finished the race in second place, which was really good. These points are very important for me."

Terrell Thien, Team Manager:
"Again Tom did a great race, he fought until the last minute and was able to win. The second place pushed him up to the second position in the championship and I am really happy about that. Our strategy with the hard rear tyre was a good one. Now we will see what the test in Aragon will bring for us and then we attack again at Sachsenring."

Daniel M. Epp, Rider Management:
"This was the third podium in a row for Tom and it was not easy for him due to the surgery he had last week. Tom again was top class. Now he has two important testing days in Aragon as he will get to grips with the new track to prepare the race in September. After the test Tom has one week for a break and he really can use it to relax. We are looking forward to start the weekend at Sachsenring as second in the championship with 17 points behind the leader Elias."
