Clement Desalle recovers from big crash to finish 3rd in Portugal!

"What can I say? In the first moto I had good speed but I struggled the whole heat. I wasn't relaxed and couldn't find my rhythm. It was not so good, but also not so bad to finish third. In the next moto I was fourth at the start but it was the same thing: I was stuck behind Paulin and found it really difficult to pass. I couldn't find a way, and Cairoli was just ahead. In the last two laps I said to myself 'it's now or never'. I did a good lap-time and got really close to Paulin but had a big crash in the braking bumps and now I have pain everywhere. I picked up the bike and could finish the race but my neck and back is painful. I was in the medical centre and they said I was OK but if tomorrow it is worse then I will go for a scan on Tuesday. I just went into that jump a bit faster than previous laps and the bumps kicked me over the top. I can't remember if the bike hit me or not. It was a hard track but I liked it. I'm disappointed because I felt like I could win the GP. The two guys were just in front of me. Anyway, I did my best and I can only hope for some more fortune in the next races."
