#52 Danny KENT – 24th (2’24.542):
“Absolutely terrible Qualifying. It felt like I was riding on ice no matter what we did with the bike. Even following other riders was impossible. They were getting on the gas and had no movement, so much more drive. It was a disaster. I had no feeling. Once again a bad Qualifying and I’m just not enjoying riding.”
