HANS TARGETS CARDIFF TONIC
Sunday 19th August 2012, 12:28
Danish star Hans Andersen is determined to bounce back from his Terenzano trouble at the FIM Fogo British SGP in Cardiff on Saturday.
The Odense-born racer is 13th in the World Championship on 43 points after leaving the Motoclub Olimpia with four on August 11.
He trails Andreas Jonsson, who occupies the final top-eight automatic qualification berth for 2013, by a mammoth 27 points and knows he must start closing the gap at the Millennium Stadium.
Andersen was third in the British Grand Prix in 2009 and also finished fourth in 2005 and 2010, so he knows how to reach the medal race in the Welsh capital.
"Iâ€™ve done well at Cardiff in the past. Iâ€™ve got confidence in myself and I donâ€™t think I need to knock myself after Terenzano."
- Hans Andersen
“It would be nice to win that one,” he said. “I’ve done well at Cardiff in the past. I’ve got confidence in myself and I don’t think I need to knock myself after Terenzano. I think it was a bit of a lottery.
“Most of the riders went out and won a race and then ran a last. It’s very hard, but I still think I’m riding well. I’m on the right track and Cardiff should be alright.”
Andersen, who bagged a heat win in Italy, admits he is baffled as to where it all went wrong at the last round.
He said: “I don’t know what we could have done differently. You go out and win a race and then you run a last in the next one.
“I’m deeply disappointed in my own performance and frustrated at the same time. We tried everything and practice seemed good. But you win everything in practice when you race yourself.”
