Nurburgring World Supersport: Solid start for Hill in Germany
Speaking to MCN, Hill said: “It was a bit of a shock to be honest because everyone was on it from the first lap. It took me a few laps to get into it and I knew I had to just settle down and do my own thing.
“At the start of the session I was getting passed by two or three riders every lap on the straight, I didn’t know if it was the bike or me not having enough corner speed so I cam in.
“It turned out that it was due to the cold temperature meant that the bike wasn’t revving out properly. We put some tape on the radiator and I pretty much got one flying lap before the rain came and that jumped me up six places to 19th.
After that the track was wet but I went back out and did a few laps just to get a feel for the bike in the conditions.”
