Aussie Jack Miller denied any wrongdoing after he came off on the opening lap at the final chicane in the Dutch TT, colliding with Avintia Ducati's Hector Barbera.

Spaniard Barbera blamed the CWM LCR Honda rider for the incident, claiming he was hit by the series rookie.

Both riders were ruled out of the race, with Barbera's leg becoming tangled in the rear wheel of Miller's RC213V-RS.

Outlining his view on the crash, Miller said: "I got a really good start and had a small touch with Eugene Laverty off the line, but after that I recovered.

"Coming into the last corner I tried to pass [Alvaro] Bautista but my rear tyre overtook my front tyre and I got a little nudge from someone.

"It was unfortunate because I felt quite good here all weekend and my pace wasn't so bad, so to end it like this was a shame," he added.

"We are working hard every week, and I look forward to getting back to racing at Sachsenring.

"I'm more disappointed about losing the experience of racing here; we've missed out on a lot of laps and we are here to make laps.

"If we keep working hard I'm sure we can do a great job in Germany next time."
