Aleix Espargaro: “We improved the front end”

Aprilia rider hoping to get back in the battle in France

Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing Team Gresini) says the Jerez test was a very useful one for the Noale factory, and as the paddock heads to Le Mans for the HJC Helmets Grand Prix de France, the Spaniard is hopeful the information gained will be useful in moving back up nearer the fight at the front.

With a test day for Michelin also undertaken at Le Mans, a new track surface and the positive information at the #JerezTest, the scene is set for a move forward after improvements with the front end.

Aleix Espargaro: “After the test in Jerez, we understood our bike better with different front tyres. We also improved the front end on the bike, so I think that in Le Mans with the new surface, and with the private test that we did 2 weeks ago, we should be competitive again. Le Mans is not one of my favourites tracks, but I like the layout and I will try to ride a good race.”
