AFTER A GOOD FIRST SESSION WITH BOTH RIDERS IN THE TOP TEN, APRILIA FINISHES WITH ALEIX 14TH AND ANDREA 18TH
The European rounds of the 2019 MotoGP season are just around the corner, but the Circuit of the Americas in Texas remains to be tackled first. The more than 5.5 kilometres of American asphalt will put teams and riders to a hard test, especially with the particular characteristics of the layout and a rather bumpy surface.
The Aprilia Racing Team Gresini will stay at the CoTA on the Monday after the race as well for a day of private testing with Aleix Espargaró and Andrea Iannone in order to consolidate the growth progress that the RS-GP machines demonstrated in the first two races of 2019.
The Spanish rider will be arriving in Texas encouraged by his ninth place in the rider standings, a result that Aleix has built thanks to two solid performances in Qatar and Argentina, both top-ten finishes, which is also the primary goal in Texas. Andrea Iannone is aiming to rediscover the good feeling with the RS-GP and the consistent growth he had shown during the Qatar weekend and on the first day of practice at Termas de Rio Hondo.
