GOOD 6TH POSITION FOR SAVARY

Michael Savary achieved a very good result at Monza, finishing at the 6th place of the Superstock race. Sylvain Barrier crashed while he was in second position.

Ayrton Badovini, after being the fastest rider during the timed practices, took the lead of the race in front of Sylvain Barrier. Both men stayed together for a long time, until some rain drops made the track a little bit slippery in the Lesmo curve. That is where Sylvain crashed. After he was checked at the Clinica Mobile, doctors there released him in good health.

Michael Savary confirmed his progression all weekend long. He was careful in the beginning of the race, then went faster and faster, passing many riders in the process. He finally crossed the finish line in sixth position. This is the best result of the Swiss rider since the beginning of the season.

Michel Garnier (team owner): "I am not happy at all. Sylvain could not follow Badovini. I asked him before the race to score points. He was too fast everywhere. We lost a great deal: the second position in the championship. Michael did a good race. He rode really well. He scored very good points."

Michael Savary: "My start was average. I was seventeenth after one lap. There were a few rain drops on the back of the track, where some riders crashed. I was careful. The set up was good. After four laps, I gained many positions. I had a good feeling with the bike. I am happy, this is a good progress and my lap times were faster than during the practice sessions."

Sylvain Barrier, at the Clinica Mobile, was not available for an interview.
