Hard fought point at Dutch TT for Bendsneyder after jumpstart

Bo Bendsneyder had the extra motivation of racing at home. The weekend did not start in the best way, but both the rider and the team were able to recover and have had very positive feelings. The Pertamina Mandalika Sag Team rider was sanctioned with a double long lap penalty for a jump start, which didn’t allow him to reach the front positions despite having had a great pace throughout the weekend. Bendsneyder finished in fifteenth position entering in the points.

#64 Bo Bendsneyder – P15 – +22,162

“I just want to apologize to my team because it’s been a really positive weekend after a really bad Friday. The team did an amazing job, they worked until the late hours of Friday night and they gave me such a good feeling on Saturday. On qualifying, we made a good job for the race, I showed that the race pace was there to fight for the top 8 but I made a big mistake at the start. I made a jump startd and I got a double long lap penalty that made it difficult because I lost five or six seconds. After that, I put my head down and I gave my best to get back into the points. I showed that we were super fast and I overtook other riders quite easy. Now it’s time to take a break for a few weeks and after that go back to training to get ready for Austria”.
