Most is a weekend Dominique Aegerter wants to forget. First, the fall in Race 1, then the simulation of the accident, followed by the FIM’s suspension for Race 2.

The Swiss rider didn’t want to speak to the media about the accident, In the evening, the Ten Kate team issued a press release with Aegerter’s statement regarding the unfortunate situation: "First of all, I'm sorry for the situation that has arisen from the incident in Race 1. It was a very tense situation, where I didn’t act correctly, making mistakes. At that moment, there was a lot of pressure, adrenaline, and emotion inside me. I never wanted to put other people in danger, and I want to apologize for that."

His mind is now focused on the second part of the World Championship: "The championship isn’t yet over. Our attention is now on the second part of the season during which we’ll work hard to get the best possible performance. I'm never giving up. See you at Magny-Cours."
