Misano proves unlucky race for Aleix Espargaro

 In MotoGP, News


It was a race two sides for the NGM Forward Racing Team at Misano with Alex De Angelis finishing 14th in front of his home crowd, while it was an unlucky race for Aleix Espargaro, who crashed on the very last lap when he was in 8th place.

Started from the third row, the Spaniard pushed hard from the beginning as he is used to do, but since the first laps he realized that there was something wrong with the rear. The bike was moving a lot and he lost some positions.

In the second part of the race, he was able to recover, despite he was struggling a lot with the rear. He was in 8th position on the last lap, when he suddenly lost the rear with no warning and he crashed, fortunately without consequences.

With today’s result, Espargaro leaves Misano in 7th position in the championship but he is confident to recover in Aragon in 2 weeks time.

Aleix Espargaro
“Since the beginning of the race I realized that there was something wrong with the rear. I had less grip than this morning in the warm up and I struggled a lot. I managed to stay in 8th position but on the very last lap I suddenly lost the rear without warning. I’m really sorry”.
