Blog | Hanro fighting back from a start line stall in Sachsenring 2 | 2014

Hanro Van Rooyen

Howzit everyone,

Finally the long wait for Race 2 was over and I couldn't wait to get back on the track! The lights were off and I only made 10 metres when I unfortunately stalled the bike. I had to start from pit lane again, thanks to Juan for starting my bike quickly.

I pushed as hard as I possibly could, but it was all in vain, because in the 4th lap the front runners already had lapped me. I could see yellow flags waving in some corners, due to crashes, which gave me a bigger advantage to pick up some points, unfortunately I only crossed the finish line in 16th position...

I am very happy with the result and can't wait to fight again for champion points. My mechanic made some changes on my bike setup and it improved my lap times by 1sec. We will work from here going forward.

Can't wait to see my mom back in South Africa. Thanks for everyone's support and motivation. See you all in Brno. Safe travels.

Catch you later,

Hanro #21
