WBSK Misano, San Marino: Davies left to rue race two tumble

'I'm just disappointed because we have shown a good pace and great potential on this track throughout the weekend' - Chaz Davies.
Welshman Chaz Davies' weekend at Misano ended on a sour note when the Aruba.it Ducati rider slid out of contention on lap two in the second World Superbike race.

Davies went down a turn 14, the same corner that caught out team-mate Davide Giugliano in Saturday's opening race.

He was forced to retire and afterwards admitted his disappointment over the outcome.

“I'm just disappointed because we have shown a good pace and great potential on this track throughout the weekend, but we could not bring it to fruition,” said Davies, who finished fourth in race one on Saturday.

“Yesterday we had the opportunity to win, and today we were ready to climb back after a cleaner start. It's hard to explain the crash, I didn't feel on the limit and I had the same corner speed and lean angle, but this is racing sometimes.

“At least I didn't sustain serious injuries. My right wrist is sore but hopefully I'll be back to 100 per-cent soon and fight for better results in Laguna Seca.”

Davies remains in third place in the championship standings but is now 99 points behind title favourite Jonathan Rea.
