Team Hero EBR Continues With Bike Development On Opening Day At Aragon

MotorLand Aragon in Spain is the venue for the opening European race of this year’s World Superbike Championship and it’s another totally new track for Team Hero EBR.

The plan today was to continue with the parts that we tested earlier in the week, whilst learning the track and finding the base setting for the EBR 1190RX.

Near perfect weather meant that both riders were able to do a lot of laps and this data will be valuable in the final free practice session tomorrow.

Aaron was slightly faster in the sessions today but both he and Geoff are aiming for a spot in the Tissot-Superpole and are confident that the EBR 1190RX could be part of the grid deciding session which will take place at 1500 local time tomorrow.

Aaron Yates 25th position: “I am happy with the progress that we made in today’s sessions. There was a big gap since Phillip Island and we have been working hard. I feel more comfortable on the bike and am happy to be back racing. Of course we still have a lot of work to do but we are moving in the right direction and we are all confident that over the coming races we will see big improvements, starting I hope tomorrow.”

Geoff May – 27th position: “I will be pushing hard to make the Superpole tomorrow but for sure that’s the aim. We will find some direction tomorrow and I am sure that we can improve tomorrow and again in the race. The track is great and I like riding it. The whole team and all my mechanics are working hard so thanks to them. We will get there.”
