Toseland laments costly qualifying crash

The Yamaha Sterilgarda rider hits problems in Superpole as a crash prevents him from progressing beyond SP2.
James Toseland has expressed his disappointment at being unable to qualify higher than 12th for his home World Superbike round at Silverstone after crashing during Superpole.

The former champion has been amongst the pace setters throughout the weekend on the Yamaha Sterilgarda, but having left it late to make his final attempt at cracking into the shootout, Toseland would lose the bike midway around the lap.

Leaving him 12th on the grid for the two races, Toseland was frustrated to be down on the third row.

“Things have been going pretty well this weekend, I have been quite pleased with the bike and things have been moving forward. The lap where I crashed I had my second qualifier in, it was working really well and when I came through the new section I tipped it left and it felt like something touched and picked up the front of the bike and away it went.

“It has really been one of those years this year. I am bitterly frustrated but we are still clinging on to the third row. We just have to brush ourselves down and get on with it tomorrow.”

It's beyond ridiculous that these immature posts are not deleted. How Crash.net can be happy to allow this tone on their website is a complete mystery to me. Perhaps they just don't have any standards. Remember that fake survey that was going to "change the look of the site", well it hasn't even materialised! Crash.net you are a joke! No better than the *****s posting nasty comments about the riders, I'm ******* sick of seeing this school boy level of mentality, EVERY time I visit this site it's not big, it's not clever and it ain't funny. I liked this site becuase of the broad range of news, but it just not worth bothering with anymore. HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HAVE TO COMPLAIN?
