Benny Solís was able to finish the race. A success considering his physical issues.
The Argiñano & Ginés Racing Team rider, Edgar Pons, achieved today a clear win in Jerez, in another race of the Moto2 European Championship season. It is his third victory this year and also the third consecutive one. Edgar started from pole position and no one was able to challenge him, as he crossed the Finish line with more than a 7-second advantage of the leader of the Championship, Jesko Raffin. This result allows the AGR rider to climb to the second overall place in the Moto2 FIM CEV Repsol standings, 47 points behind Raffin, with three races to go, two in Albacete and one in Valencia. The title is a difficult objective, but not impossible.
It was a very good weekend for the Argiñano & Ginés Racing Team, also because the American rider Benny Solís achieved his aims, finishing in the top 10, considering that he is not at his 100%, as he is recovering from his back injury. Solís surprised everyone by improving his time in the free practice and overcoming pain with a constant pace.
Moto2 #57 Edgar Pons –Kalex / 1st:“I’m very happy with this race. We knew we had a better pace than our rivals and that I needed to do a good start. Arriving first to the first corner made the rest easier. I focused on pushing and I was able to slowly gain a better margin. I’m very happy with the help I receive from the team. The set-up of our Kalex is very competitive. I also want to thank again everyone who supports me”.
Moto2 #35 Benny Solís –Kalex / 10th: “I’m really happy with this weekend. With my back problems, the last two months were tough but we arrived here ready to finish and doing it in the top ten. The team did their best to adapt the bike to my needs and my style and they helped me a lot. I’m also very happy for them. Thanks to the team and, of course, congratulations to my team mate”.
