Difficult #PortugueseGP for Aldeguer in 13th place, DNF for Lopez

 In Moto2, News

The Portuguese Grand Prix turned out to be more difficult than expected for the CAG SpeedUp Team although the weekend started well for the two riders who showed their potential and skills on the Portuguese circuit during the first two free sessions.

Following yesterday’s qualifying the team worked hard to improve the feeling on their Boscoscuro machines, but luck was not on their side during today’s race.

Aldeguer made a good start and from sixteenth position he managed to gain three positions until he closed the first lap in p12. The race then turned out to be more tough than expected and Fermin was good at maintaining a constant pace until the end, arriving thirteenth at the finish line and thus obtaining his first points of 2023.

The race of CAG SpeedUp number 21 rider ended early. Alonso, who started from the fifth row, managed to move up to p11 after the start. On the following lap, due to a contact with another rider, the race direction imposed a long lap on Lopez and after completing it he found himself in p18. Alonso, without giving up, then showed that he had good pace and determination but with five laps to go, when he was in p14, he lost control of his Boscoscuro bike, ending his race.

ALDEGUER #54: 13th

It was a difficult race. For sure we expected a different result after practicing on the track last week during the test. I still continue to think positive and work ahead of next week’s race!


The truth is that it wasn’t the start of the season I expected. During today’s race I had some bad luck but I think every mistake is a lesson. We remain very competitive and I can’t wait to redeem myself during the next race.
