Avintia Esponsorama lands this weekend to race the fourth round of the MotoE World Cup, the Motul TT Assen. It will be the first time that the electric category completes a weekend in ‘The Cathedral’.
Xavi Cardelús arrives in the Netherlands after an unlucky weekend in Barcelona. Despite this, the Andorran rider has been showing a great progression this season, being faster, stronger, and more comfortable on the Energica Ego Corsa.
André Pires is looking forward to a new challenge for him, with the main objective of continuing to accumulate laps and learning in the category. The Portuguese rider is 15th in the overall standings with 11 points.
Tomorrow at 11:50am the Motul TT Assen will start with the first free practice session of the MotoE class.
“A new MotoE weekend and a new circuit for this category. We will see how we adapt and how fast we can be here. I’m happy to be back at Assen and it’s a circuit I think we can get a good result. I hope to have better luck as we are coming from three races without getting what we need as a team, I think we are working well and we deserve better results. We will work 100% and soon or later our reward will come.”
“I’m happy to be at Assen, it’s a circuit with a lot of history. I am very motivated, ready to work with the team and try to improve from the last race. It’s a new circuit for me, it’s going to be difficult, but we’ll fight until the end.”
