Moto2: SDK Endures “Toughest Weekend Of The Season” At Mugello
A bruising weekend in Mugello for the American Racing Team as early contact hindered Sean Dylan Kelly’s race whilst Rory Skinner was forced to sit out due to injury.
It was a difficult start to Sean’s weekend in Mugello as he suffered from an arm problem early in the first session. Despite his physical issue, he improved on by two seconds across the practices to finish combined 22nd.
Two big moments hindered Sean’s qualifying, dropping him away from the group he was riding with and preventing him from improving on his time, putting him 23rd on the grid for the ItalianGP.
As the lights went out for the 19-lap race, Sean suffered early contact with another rider, sending him wide. The American then had to take avoiding action for a crash ahead of him, putting him to the back of the field.
Latching onto the group ahead of him, Sean began a race-long battle with Lorenzo Dalla Porta as the duo chopped and changed positions.
