A Fall At Almeria Ends Prematurely The First Day Of Testing Of Xavier Simeon

The first test of 2014 at Almeria has not started in the best way for Xavier Siméon and Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2. This morning, after only a few laps, the Belgian rider suffered a fall in which he reported several wounds on his face. Siméon was taken to the hospital, where the analisys have fortunately ruled out fractures or further complications. The recovery of Siméon, who tomorrow will not resume testing, remains yet to evaluate.

The activity on track is therefore continued with the only Lorenzo Baldassarri, of Team Gresini Moto2: the Italian rode the 2014 Suter machine, setting a best time of 1'38"7.

Baldassari will be back on track tomorrow for the second and final day of testing.

“After the long winter break today it took a bit of time to reach a good pace and the right feeling with the bike, but we worked with calm and in the end we got some positive feedback, already approaching the lap times set last November. Tomorrow we will continue on this direction, looking for further improvements. I’m only a bit disappointed for the little crash at the end of the day: I felt very comfortable on the bike after a small change on the set-up so I decided to make one last ‘run’ with a new tyre, but unfortunately it was still cold and I slipped”.

"I am very sorry for Xavier, he was really unlucky. I hope he can recover as soon as possible, because we are already missing him. We really count on him for this season and we are sure he will return to form very soon. Baldassarri has resumed his apprenticeship, setting already in this first day of testint the same lap times he did last November, so we are confident regarding his growth”.
