WSS » Sam Lowes: Sofuoglu did it on purpose…


Sam Lowes: I didn't expect Kenan to make such a manoeuvre! He did it purposely. It's wrong and shouldn't happen again.

Honestly, my opinion of Sam has gone down a little as a result of this. Kenan's move wasn't even harsh. Sure, it wasn't a corner where you'd usually pass, but that's where the best riders usually do it. Kenan was well ahead when Sam turned in on him and it was up to Sam to check. The race stewards know their stuff (probably a lot better than the posters here) and found the move legal. It's that kind of pass that makes racing exciting.

Yea, I'm going for the 50/50 angle on this. Of course I was disappointed to see the home hero hit the deck, but I think to say "he did it on purpose" is a little pointless.

Facts are these, Sam (almost) did the same to Kenan 1 corner before hand (good move) - that forced Kenan wide and to cut back. Sam may not have SEEN him but he KNEW thats what he was gonna do if he didnt take the tight line around the 2nd of the corners, which he didnt - Sam ran slightly wide, left the door open, realised his mistake and tried to shut it but kenan had already half-wheeled him.

It's racing folks, its whats gonna make us tune into the next race I suppose!!

Also, I dont like attacking someone in "press releases", I'd have sooner seen them throw a couple of fists at each other in Parc Ferme, put it down to "passion", and then move on.......why is everything done through f**king social media these days (says the bloke writing an essay on a forum!)

"The race was alost won" What kind of rubbish is that? I was rutting for Sam all the way, but this entitlement mentality he's showing is weak. Fact that he is high fiving Sofoglu on track after the race, and later moans, shows weak character. Being two faced is never good. Sam you're a great rider, but be real or this act will get old quick.

I dont understand the riders, they whant to loock good to the cameras is all god, but then they complain..lol Sam was infront of Kenan but Kenan saw a gap and put is bike right on that gap if Sam didnt wach him what we can say.. Riders have to surprissed other riders Win a race, was a final lap and if kenan move was ugly what we can say about Rea move on Donigton when he crash Haslam an then was a big mess, Rea move was far worse then Kenan move but because Rea is so loved even Reporters from Eurosport where more soft
