Avintia Esponsorama Racing has completed the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.
During the first of the two races, Eric Granado suffered a crash that did not allow him to finish. The Brazilian rider, who was in the fight for victory, lost control of his motorcycle and could not do anything to avoid the crash. His teammate, Xavi Cardelús, achieved a fantastic 9th position, adding seven very important points.
Facing the second race, Granado has completed a great comeback after starting from the back of the grid. Due to the few laps offered by the races in the category, the rider from Sao Paulo was able to finish 7th. For his part, Xavi Cardelús, as in the first race, was able to finish in the TOP-10, a very important result for him and for the team to face the next races with the greatest possible confidence.
After two very intense weeks in Misano, Avintia Esponsorama Racing will prepare for the last competition weekend of the MotoE World Cup, the French Grand Prix, which will be held from October 9th to 11th in Le Mans.
Eric Granado | P7
“After yesterday’s race crash, we started at the 14th position, so we had to go back. In the middle of the race I had a touch with a rider and I lost some time, but happy with the seventh position that was the most we could aspire to today.”
Xavier Cardelús | P10
“Another Top-10 obtained, although I expected a little more from today’s race because we start in the third row. I have to improve the firsts laps and gain confidence when overtaking, which is something that is still difficult for me on this bike. Looking ahead to Le Mans we will try to improve this and hope I can do a good race.”
