Crump struggles in Italy

Posted:

The Italian Grand Prix saw many of the top riders experience difficulties in coming to grips with the fast and slick track with many of them failing to make the semi-finals.

Australian Jason Crump managed two race wins and collected just six points on the night leaving the triple world champion disappointed and dejected.

"Practice on Friday went good and my bikes were set up well for the conditions but come Saturday, it was a completely different surface and it caught me out." said Crump. "I needed a good result here and while Gollob, Pedersen, Holder and co all had miserable nights too, American Greg Hancock pulled another good meeting out of the hat and is clearly leading the World Championship now and will be hard to catch."

"The task ahead of me is tough for the remainder of the series and I need to get some decent results to get back to the top. The next round is in Sweden at Malilla and I have had good results there in the past so I am hoping I can get it all together there."

Round 7 will be held on 13 August 2011 at Malilla, Sweden.
