LCR E-TEAM RIDERS COMPLETE THE INAUGURAL MOTOE RACE
The much anticipated 2020 FIM Enel MotoE World Cup is now officially underway, with the first race completed at Angel Nieto circuit in Jerez.
Not such bad day for LCR E-Team rider Niccolò Canepa, especially following the bad crash he suffered yesterday. The Italian rider started at the back of the grid but moved up 4 positions in to land in 13th place. Niccolò rode on a completely new bike, with no possibility to feel it before the start of the race. Results would have been different had he started in an upper position of the grid.
Xavier Simeon, on the other hand experienced some acceleration problems that pushed him further down the rankings, though he rode well to put himself in the top 10 landing an 8th overall position.
The LCR Squad look forward to next week’s race since they felt pretty confident and fast on their bikes during this week’s practices and e-pole.
