Day 1 sees Garzo top the MotoE™ times in Valencia

17 of the 18 MotoE™ riders were at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo to start their three-day test

Tech 3 E-Racing’s Hector Garzo has finished Day 1 of the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup official Valencia Test at the top of the timesheets thanks to his 1:41.743, with Eric Granado (Avintia Esponsorama Racing) and Niki Tuuli (Ajo MotoE) completing the top three.

A 1:42.136 puts EG 0,0 Marc VDS’ Mike Di Meglio in fourth on the opening day at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo, but it wasn’t such a successful day for fellow Frenchman Randy de Puniet. The LCR-E Team rider suffered a nasty highside at Turn 11 and will have an x-ray on Monday evening on his foot, the former MotoGP™ podium finisher will be back on the bike for Day 2 and 3 though. Nico Terol (Openbank Angel Nieto Team) rounded out the top five with a 1:42.155.

The Energica Ego Corsa bikes will be back on track for Day 2 on Tuesday. Will Garzo’s time be beaten?
