Geoff May and Aaron Yates gave themselves every opportunity of securing their best results of the season after a spirited performance by both American riders saw them close the gap to the front greatly in the third and fourth Free Practice sessions at the Imola circuit earlier today.
So far this weekend the EBR 1190RX has been trouble free and that has allowed the team to once again improve every time they go on track, putting them in an encouraging position ahead of tomorrow’s races.
Starting 26th and 27th on the grid, Geoff and Aaron know how tough the races, which are set to run in the hottest conditions of the year to date will be, but both are optimistic of being able to fight with other riders in the 19 lap encounters.
Geoff May – “I am happy with the bike because we are getting closer to the other riders. We improved a lot since yesterday and now we are closer to our rivals. We need to continue in this direction.”
Aaron Yates – “I was happy with the improvements that we made on the bike. I am enjoying riding in Imola and hopefully we will be faster again and we can fight with the other riders.”
