ALEIX BATTLES AND CONFIRMS GOOD RACE PACE
As has happened often in this first part of the season, the end result does not do justice to the hard work done by Aleix and Aprilia. In a race that was more than 20 seconds faster than last year’s, the Spanish rider finished just 15 seconds behind the winner. In 2019, that gap was 34 seconds.
BATTLE WITHIN THOUSANDTHS OF A SECOND AT MISANO ADRIATICO
The qualifiers in Misano played out within the range of thousandths of a second for Aprilia. In fact, only 149 thousandths kept Aleix from pre-qualifying for Q2 in FP3, whereas in Q1, just 83 thousandths denied him the chance to battle for a spot on the first four rows.
