The 13th round of the season was held today at the MotorLand Aragon in Alcaniz. The race saw the two MV Agusta Forward Racing riders fighting a comeback race.
Simone Corsi, who started from the seventh row, immediately recovered 5 positions, continuing his climb without stopping. The Roman centaur conquered at the end the tenth position and therefore the second TOP10 of the season.
Manuel González, on the other side of the box, was no less impressive, also recovering 5 positions at the start. González also continued to lead a comeback race on his MV Agusta F2. Despite a straight on lap 12 the young Spaniard finally crossed the line in 17th, just 4 seconds from the points zone. The team congratulates Manuel on his excellent performance.
The team returns home satisfied and ready to restart the engines for the long-awaited home Grand Prix next week at Misano.
