BSB: Iddon: 'I just wasn't good enough'

Christian Iddon has admitted his performance at Knockhill this weekend wasn’t up to scratch after walking away with best result of 10th place in a sodden second race.

The former Supermoto star hadn’t finished off the podium until the third round at Brands Hatch but a mysterious lack of front end feel left him with no answers to his rivals at Knockhill. A crash in qualifying saw him start the opening race from 15th, and with no cure for the frond end issues in the dry he crossed the line 14th.


Iddon’s hopes of being able to take advantage of the wet conditions in race two were dashed when a badly misted visor reduced his visibility, leaving him to bring it home in a safe tenth place.

Despite the nightmare weekend, the Tyco BMW man remains third in the championship albeit just one point ahead of Buildbase BMW’s Richard Cooper.

“In truth I just wasn’t good enough, despite struggling to get that front end feel and confidence that we had in the early rounds,” Iddon said. “In race two I just couldn’t see, so tenth was damage limitation and it’s something I’m going to have to look at. On a positive note I’m coming away third in the championship, which is a bonus, but from Snetterton I want to be back fighting at the sharp end.”
