Hector Barbera the best Open bike in Texas qualifying

 In MotoGP, News


The threat of rain was ever present during today’s free and qualifying session, but finally didn’t appear at the Circuit of the Americas and the MotoGP riders were able to ride in dry conditions.

The Avintia Racing team riders we again on the top positions of the Open class, with Hector Barbera as the fastest one and Mike Di Meglio inside the top three of the MotoGP bikes using the standard electronics.

Barbera was really close to get into the Q2 and try to improve even more his grid position, but eventually he was just 0.048s from reaching his target.

Anyway, the main goal was to be the first Open bike like in Qatar, and he made it. Both Barbera and teammate Di Meglio are prepared whatever the weather brings, they have a good setting for the dry and also if the 21 lap race is on wet conditions.

HECTOR BARBERA #8 / 13th (1st Open) 2’03.926 @HectorBarbera
Maybe we could do it a little bit better and the target of being in the Q2 was very close. But to be honest, we are the first Open bike and we are in the right direction. Tomorrow the only unknown will be the weather, but the best thing of this sport is that the conditions will be the same for everybody, and if it rains we’ll have race anyway. We are ok for dry conditions, the set up is very good, and also for the wet. We are strong in both conditions, I have a great feeling with the bike, the atmosphere inside the team is fantastic, and this the best way to get results.
