Despite not being able to finish the day-long race, Ralph Kenneth Torres put up a valiant effort to earn a respectable fifth-place finish in Race 2 of the KTM RC390 Cup Asia held at the Sepang International Circuit last July 30.

Torres, the KTM Philippines-sponsored rider managed to snatch the fifth spot at the end of the race despite being unable to finish the first day of the cup due to technical issues involving a flat rear tire.

In his Facebook post following the race, Torres shared “[It was] a tough weekend race for me,” but was still grateful for the outcome.
