The Kipin Energy Aspar Team will not be able to count on Aron Canet at the Aragon Grand Prix after the injury that occurred in a crash at the warm-up session of the last French Grand Prix. In his place, Xavi Cardelús will ride the Speed Up this weekend at Motorland, where in the last round of the Moto2 European Championship he managed to get on the podium after finishing third in one of the races. Now he changes the motorcycle on which he will compete, but he hopes that the experience and information received will help him to be competitive from the beginning. His teammate in this race, Hafizh Syahrin, arrives in Aragon after scoring a point in the Le Mans race. The Malaysian feels that he is back in the right direction and together with his technical team will fight this weekend to stay there and continue to grow.
Xavi Cardelús: “I am happy to have another opportunity with the team and also in Aragon, where I recently competed in the Moto2™ European Championship and finished third. This time I will do it with a different bike, but I trust that the adaptation will be easy. I want to show what I couldn't show last year, but we race without any pressure.”
