Gobert On His Superbike Crash: Hard Tire Not His Friend

Anthony Gobert, back at the track on Saturday, said this about his crash during Friday's Superbike qualifying session, which he was leading at the time, about 20 minutes into the 1-hour session:<BR><BR>"I put on a hard tire and highsided at the top of the hill. I just didn't give it enough time to come in. The back end came around on me at the top of the hill and sent me over the handlebars. I just got caught out by running hard tires because I never run 'em. I knew before hard tires weren't really my friend. This is a hard way to learn it. Nothing against Dunlop, it just needs a couple of laps to come in. It was my mistake."
