Tech3 Racing Moto2 Team’s Ricky Cardus rode to a superbly executed 7th place finish in his home race at the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya.

Having endured a difficult qualifying session where he started the 23-lap sprint in 20th position, Cardus undertook a phenomenal start to overtake ten riders in the first lap.

He remained with the leading group before becoming embroiled in a battle for 9th with Alex De Angelis where they exchanged notable passes.

Cheered on by his home crowd and family, Cardus took the plunge on lap 14 to overtake De Angelis and consistently held the chasing rider to successfully meet the chequered flag in 7th position, his best finish in his entire Moto2 career and a fantastic result for the Tech3 Racing Moto2 Team with their self designed and manufactured Mistral 610.

“The first thing I need to say is thanks to all the team, sponsors, Herve and the Tech3 staff. All weekend the team and I have worked very hard with various settings, trying to resolve a few issues we experienced and I have to say that we have done a great job. We improved the bike step by step and during the race I felt very comfortable with it. My start was brilliant and I managed to stay with the leading group for the first few laps before finally taking 7th at the chequered flag. I am truly happy about today’s result especially taking it here in front of my friends and family as well as considering how far back I started on the grid, it makes me feel even better. During the next week we will firstly test here and then later in Aragon and I am already looking forward to getting back on the bike and improve our confidence even more for the upcoming races.”
