Intense #CatalanGP ends with solid performance from Lopez and Aldeguer – 8th and 15th respectively
The Moto2 race of the Gran Premi de Catalunya, the home grand prix for the LighTech SpeedUp riders, has just ended.
Despite the high temperatures, Alonso López and Fermín Aldeguer completed a solid race in eighth and fifteenth place respectively, both in the point area.
Alonso made a great start recovering positions and stabilizing himself in the top ten from the first lap.
Good rhythm, decisive in all 22 laps of the Gran Premi de Catalunya, and the determination of the rider from Madrid who never stopped fighting until the end of the race, crossing the line in eighth position.
Good performance by Fermín who closed a complicated weekend in the points. The start of the number 54 was decisive in which he gained three positions compared to his position on the grid. A feeling with the bike to improve but with a lot of determination Fermin managed to close the race with a good fifteenth place.
ALONSO LÓPEZ # 21: 8th
I am delighted with how this weekend went! I felt good already in this morning’s warm up when we rode well even though the tire was used. In the race I made a good start while maintaining the position reached. Then it was not easy to gain positions especially after a mistake that prevented me from staying ahead. In the end we are learning a lot because we are driving with fast riders. We go home with a super result and with the desire to get back on track soon!
FERMÍN ALDEGUER # 54: 15th
Difficult race I must say. In a complicated weekend it was certainly the best result we could have achieved, but we have to keep fighting and growing. I thank the team for their hard work and for having suffered with me during this hard weekend. In Germany we will try to improve our weaknesses and get back to having fun!
