The australian Remy gardner (Kalex) led the first round of free trials for the Moto2 Spanish Grand Prix in the circuit Angel Nieto of Jerez, both at the beginning of it and at the end, when he surpassed the Italian by just over a tenth of a second Marco Bezzecchi (Kalex).
Although the first leader of the category was the Spanish Aron Canet (Boscoscuro), it didn’t take long for the world leader, the Australian, to climb to the top position. Remy gardner (Kalex), 1: 42.125, seconded by the American Joe Roberts (Kalex) and the Spanish Raul Fernandez (Kalex), Jorge Navarro (Darkwood) and Augusto Fernandez (Kalex).
But the session had only just begun and soon it was the British Sam lowes (Kalex), who became a benchmark of it, being the first to go down one minute and 42 seconds to shoot in 1: 41.909, while some of his rivals, such as the Italian Marco Bezzecchi (Kalex) had his fastest lap canceled for exceeding the limits of the circuit.
The final minutes were intense and the failures began to be lavished with greater intensity, as in the case of his own Sam
Lowes, who was on the ground when the front end of his motorcycle lost grip in turn six and saw with it how paradoxically whoever surpassed him in the times table was the properor Bezzecchi.
He wasn’t too lucky either Aron Canet, who crashed on turn thirteen of the track, practically in the last minute of the session, and the records of many of the top riders in the table were canceled for exceeding the limits of the track, although seven of they managed to roll under one minute and 42 seconds.
Gardner, which also saw a fast lap being canceled for that reason -exceeding the limits of the track- ended up climbing to the first position (1: 41.675), closely followed by Marco Bezzecchi, Sam Lowes, Raúl Fernández, Jorge Navarro, Fabio di Giannantonio and Augusto Fernández.
Another Spanish, Xavier Vierge (Kalex), finished in eighth position, with the two pilots of the Valencian team of Aspar, on Boscoscuro trails, Arón Canet and Albert Arenas, the 2020 Moto3 world champion, were thirteenth and fourteenth, respectively.
