Gino Rea qualifies season best of 13th at Valencia
“I think it´s been a positive weekend for us. I had quite a good start but in the first lap there were two incidents. In one Zarco hit me and I went onto the grass and I lost couple of positions which wouldn´t be so bad but then on the last turn, the Malaysian Syahrin went to pass me but crashed. I hit his bike and ran of the circuit again and went all the way back to 28th. Then I just put my head down and tried to ride as fast as possible and the good thing for us was that I was able to pass many riders and get back to 16th. The important thing is we had good pace to be top 15 if it wasn't for the lap one incidents”
