Kennedy was as high as third at one point in the race and spent the majority of the race in a group battling for 4th. The arm pump issue started this weekend according to the Irishman, who says he last suffered arm-pump in 2008 whilst riding an R1. Despite the disappointment Kennedy is pleased he’s managed to record his best ever result in World Supersport, an aim he highlighted to PaddockChatter after qualifying.
Speaking to PaddockChatter.com after the race, Kennedy said:“It was a good race out there, I’m happy with my best result ever and some good points on the board, it was a good battle out there, it was tough towards the end as I was trying to preserve my arm as much as the tyre. The arm pump really got to me towards the end, the last three or four laps or so I was holding on for dear life and I really wanted to have a go on the last lap but I just didn’t have the power in my hand to brake any later. But, I can’t complain, I got no points at Monza and here at my home race I got my best result ever and the Rivamoto Honda was working really well.”
