Davies disappointed to crash out in Race 2

Chaz Davies expressed his frustration after he was forced to retire after crashing in Race 2 at Misano on Sunday. 

The Aruba.it Ducati rider’s race came to an end at turn 14 on lap two, the same turn where team-mate Davide Giugliano crashed on in Race 1 on Saturday.

After having finished fourth in Race 1, Davies was looking for a podium finish, but instead his campaign at Misano ended in bitter disappointment.

“I’m just disappointed because we have shown a good pace and great potential on this track throughout the weekend, but we could not bring it to fruition,” he told reporters. “Yesterday we had the opportunity to win, and today we were ready to climb back after a cleaner start. It’s hard to explain the crash, I didn’t feel on the limit and I had the same corner speed and lean angle, but this is racing sometimes.

“At least I didn’t sustain serious injuries. My right wrist is sore but hopefully I’ll be back to 100 per-cent soon and fight for better results in Laguna Seca.”

Despite a mixed showing at Misano, Davies still sits in third place on the World Superbike standings, trailing leader Jonathan Rea by 99 points after the Kawasaki rider secured first place in both races.
