Remy Gardner bounces back at San Marino GP

Remy Gardner in action at the San Marino GP 2018.

Remy Gardner has bounced back from the disappointment of not being able to start from the front row of the Moto2™ grid at the British GP with a spirited performance at the San Marino GP.

Gardner qualified second at Silverstone a fortnight ago before the race was cancelled following heavy rainfall.

While the Aussie had an unfortunate crash in qualifying at Misano on Saturday, he rode a strong race on Sunday to finish in 12th place.

Starting from 19th on the grid, Gardner benefited from a lightning start and made some decisive passes to add four more points to his Moto2™ season tally. 

"In the end it wasn't such a bad race and the result definitely made up for what happened in qualifying," Gardner said. 

"You can never say what would or could have happened if I had not gone down in qualifying, but we were closing in on the top 10 at the end of today's race, so I think that could have been possible.

"We move on to Aragon before we start the flyaways and I am looking forward to building on today and ending the season on a high."
