Paolo Martin: Honda World Motocross Team Owner
"Bobby was a little bit nervous in first practice, and had a crash, which was really not so good. I feel that although we are not putting pressure on him as a team, he has high expectations for his results and he is just settling into things, so he made some mistakes. In the race he went off-line and hit one of the plastic posts, which damaged the front header pipe on the bike, so he had to stop. Anyway, the race is tomorrow and although he doesn't have a good starting position, for sure the speed he has shown in pre-qualifying was strong, so this shouldn't be such a big problem. Rui got a good start to the qualifying race, but he got caught up on the first lap. Then he caught back up to (Davide) Guarneri but he didn't get past him quick enough, and finished 10th. I think Rui was maybe also a little bit nervous, but we look forward to starting again tomorrow for the race."
