Seewer on a frustrating weekend in Switzerland after his crash
After an action packed qualifying race that saw Seewer come through the pack, crash then come back up to sixth the Swiss rider showed he had good speed to challenge for the main two motos on Sunday but, on lap one, it all went wrong after Vlaanderen and Seewer collided in mid-air. Seewer had to come from last again with a bent bike and could only get to 20th and one point. He gated well in race two to take fifth, still feeling the effects of that race one hit, in which Seewer was lucky not to be injured.

Seewer said: “I felt amazing here in Frauenfeld. I had good speed and was feeling good on the track, but it took only five laps until I was hit with the hammer again in the first race. My goal was to start solid and take decent points. It’s not like I lined up here to go 1-1, but what happened to me this weekend, was just a ‘wrong time, wrong place’ situation. Another rider made a mistake and went from left to right on a jump, and the next minute, I was on the floor. I was lucky not to get hurt. The bike was destroyed from that, and it was not fun to race with a bent bike in front of your home crowd. In the second race, I did my best, but after the impact of the crash in the first race, I felt sore and completely drained. It’s frustrating. But now I just hope I recover well, and as quick as possible. I’m already looking forward to being back on the gate in Trentino in few days.”
