March 9, by Forward Racing. The Brazilian rider Granado, ended the day with a good 1: In his turn the young Italian rider stopped the time trial at 1: The checkered flag concludes the first two weeks of winter testing in , and the whole team is now ready to go home, waiting for the next test to be held on 26 and 27 February, again in Valencia. Unfortunately, I immediately accused physical problems that have compromised my performance.
From the very first day I had a hard time climbing the marches because of the strong cramps in the tibial area and the inflammation of the tendons of the foot. We managed to do only short trips in order not to risk aggravating my physical situation then compromising the next tests.
We will return to the track stronger than before ". In the first day I needed to understand how the bike works on this circuit and, with my guys, we laid the foundations to understand how to work best on the Suter chassis.
The second day I made a lot of laps and tried different setups to understand a little more about how my MMX2 works, which is very particular compared to the one I had before.
Today, however, we made significant changes to find the right way here at the Jerez circuit, which is certainly very different from Valencia. The world championship is certainly tough: In my opinion we are on the right way. We are working well and we are very focused to get to the first race of the season prepared and with the bike at its best.
We just have to be patience and continue to give the maximum. I am sure that with the Forward team we will be able to achieve great results ". We are really happy with his approach both on the track and with the team. Compared to November, when he first tested the Suter MMX2, Eric has lowered his best lap time by over half a second, which makes us very confident about the future. As for Stefano, we struggled to find him a comfortable driving position, because after just a few laps he complained of cramps in the tibial zone; this has hindered him a lot in the gear change.
Unfortunately, this problem has only occurred now, as on this track the change is often used, more than to a circuit like Valencia. On the other hand we are very busy on the selection of the materials to use during the season; a decidedly challenging job to do with two young guys.
However, we go back home with a lot of informations that we will analyze before the next test, to continue our growth with this fantastic bike that has a lot to discover". Con la giornata di oggi si conclude il secondo girone di test, a Jerez de la Frontera, per Eric Granado e Stefano Manzi. I due alfieri del Forward Racing Team si sono concentrati in queste giornate sulla ricerca del giusto feeling e la messa a punto delle loro nuove Suter MMX2.
Il brasiliano Granado, ha chiuso le giornate con un buon 1: Il giovane Riminese, a sua volta, ha fermato il cronometro a 1: Purtroppo ho accusato sin da subito problemi fisici che hanno compromesso la mia performance. Siamo riusciti a fare solo uscite brevi e questo per non rischiare di aggravare la mia situazione fisica e compromettere quindi i prossimi test. Siamo riusciti comunque a provare una parte di quanto avevamo in programma e utilizzeremo le informazioni raccolte per proseguire la nostra preparazione in vista del Qatar.
Bisogna comunque ricordarsi che si tratta solo del secondo test e ce ne sono ancora altri due davanti a noi prima del Qatar. Secondo me siamo sulla buona strada. Stiamo lavorando bene e molto concentrati per poter arrivare alla prima gara di stagione preparati e con la moto pronta per scendere in pista al meglio.
