The first race in the history of #MotoE took place today at the Sachsenring circuit. It was a historic event in the world of two wheels with 18 riders and the Energica Ego Corsa fighting until the red flag stopped the race two laps from the end due to the crash of Salvadori.
Alex De Angelis, who started from ninth place, immediately recovered two positions at the first corner and then engaged in an exciting duel with Simeon to finish in sixth position.
Josh Hook started from sixteenth position and managed in the first laps to gain two positions then finishing 15th.
|P6 – Alex De Angelis “I had a great time. At the first corner I chose to brake and stay inside and it was a good tactic because it allowed me to recover some positions. The duel with Simeon made me lose contact with the leading group but it was really exciting”.||P15 – Josh Hook “The feeling with the bike grew during the race. It was very important to be with the peloton on a circuit where I raced on Friday for the first time. It wasn’t a particularly satisfying weekend but we have to take the positive side and improve”.|
