The MotoE World Cup lands this weekend at the Red Bull Ring – Spielberg, where the Bitci Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich, fifth round of the season, will take place.
Xavi Cardelús, currently 18th in the overall standings with 7 points, is having an unlucky season so far. Despite this, the Andorran rider is proving to be fast on the Energica Ego Corsa and is ambitious for Austria, with the main objective of achieving a good result.
André Pires faces a new challenge this weekend. The Avintia Esponsorama Racing rider faces the Austrian Grand Prix with the desire to continue to evolve on the bike and, step by step, to get closer to the front positions of the category. Pires is 16th in the standings with a total of 11 points.
The action at the Red Bull Ring – Spielberg for the MotoE riders will start on Friday at 11:50am for the first free practice of the Bitci Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich.
“I was able to recharge my batteries during the summer break. I’m really looking forward to getting back on the MotoE bike and the Red Bull Ring is a circuit I really like. We will keep working as hard as we have been, even if the results haven’t been what we wanted, but I’m sure we will be rewarded soon.”
“I had a positive break. I have trained a lot, both supermotard and motocross. I’m really looking forward to getting back on the MotoE and seeing if I’ve made any progress. I can’t wait for the weekend to start working. I feel very motivated.”
