Vierge powers to 9th in front of home crowd – Gardner perseveres in arduous Catalunya fight

Tech3 Racing Team rider Xavi Vierge produced a determined and highly impressive performance at the gruelling Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya to finish 9th. The young Spaniard undertook a solid start and maintained a strong pace whilst he fought against the vastly experienced riders in the highly competitive group as track temperatures reached over 50 degrees. Eventually, Vierge emerged from the scrap to seal his 5th top ten finish of the year.

On the other side of the garage, Remy Gardner pushed nonstop at the punishing circuit to reach 20th by the fall of the flag. The promising Australian endured a tough qualifying campaign and launched forward from 26th on the grid. Nevertheless, he bolted forwards when the GP began and snaked his way up the field, despite the difficult conditions, before reaching the chequered flag.
