Bradl crashes out of podium position

"It's difficult to find the right words because we are all very disappointed, but this is racing" - Stefan Bradl.
MotoGP rookie Stefan Bradl crashed out just moments after moving into a debut podium position at Aragon on Sunday.

The Honda LCR rider lost the front of his RCV just a few corners after overtaking Ben Spies.

“It's difficult to find the right words because we are all very disappointed, but this is racing,” said the young German. “My feeling out there was very good today: good overall package, good start and good first laps.

“I felt very comfortable on braking and then I noticed I could go as fast as guys like Spies and Crutchlow so I wanted to push immediately because I knew that the rear tyre would have dropped towards the end of the race.

“I overtook Spies and I lost the front in turn 3: maybe I was a bit too aggressive and I am sorry for my team and my fans. Anyway we are in good shape and really looking forward to the next race”.

Bradl's second non-score of the year means he is now 13-points behind fellow satellite Honda rider Alvaro Bautista and Ducati's Valentino Rossi, for sixth in the standings.
