Townley picked-up nine points for his disrupted world championship tally and with a total of 128 now sits 15th in the standings.
‰ÛÏTough weekend but it doesn't sound like much different to what I have been saying all year," Townley said, "I put it down twice early in the first one so I decided to save my energy for the second. I wanted a decent and consistent moto but fell with a lap to go. It‰Ûªs been a hard old season.
"I expected a much better weekend. We just need to keep working. We made some positive changes overnight. The team had some ideas and we made a fork and a shock change to make the bike softer and that made it turn better and gain more traction.‰Û
