Video: Febvre’s costly crash at Mantova
See the crash that cost Romain Febvre any remaining chance at the world championship in the final moto thriller at Mantova. Herlings had passed the Frenchman and was putting in the fastest laps of the race but Febvre was doing all he could to hang in there until he looped out. A hard way to end your title hopes.
An understandably devastated Febvre, who had ridden so well all day, said: “To fall that close is really tough. I gave my best so I have no regrets, but it wasn’t quite enough to take the title. Right now I feel a little mad with myself for sure but that’s racing: it’s a hard way to lose but I gave my all. At the moment it’s really tough but I will get through it and be back to battle for the title for Kawasaki again next year. “
