Danny Kent in Moto3 and Scott Redding in Moto2 are the best on the second day of testing at Jerez

Second day of the second official tests of the season for the categories of Moto2 and Moto3, that as you well know are taking place in the Jerez Circuit. As for the protagonists of the day, say that Danny Kent has re-dominated in Moto3, while Scott Redding, who already stood out in Cheste a week ago, has led the Moto2 times table.

On the other hand, the scare of the day has given us Alberto Moncayo, who has suffered a strong fall, although I already anticipate that tomorrow he will be normally on the last day of these tests. Today the day has been a little cooler and cloudy. In fact, a few drops fell at the end of the afternoon, but that hasn't stopped the riders from riding faster than yesterday according to their teams, you already know about the unofficial times, right? Go for it…

Moto3: Danny Kent is still strong and Alberto Moncayo scares us


It seems that Danny Kent He has gotten the hang of it KTM Moto3, because today he was the fastest on the Jerez track again and dropping his time from yesterday to 1'47.5, that is not bad friends. In the second place of the day we meet Maverick Viñales, that he has only fallen two tenths behind the British rider and that he continues to show that he will be a clear favorite for the title this year, while third was another of the regulars in the top positions this preseason, Hector Faubel. They close the top five Sandro Cortese (with fall included), which has been fourth, and Miguel Angel Oliveira fifth.

And now we go with the already mentioned scare of the day. It only took six laps Alberto moncayo (who has finished sixth), when at the exit of Dry sack he fell to the ground in a very hard fall, so much so that he was forced to be under observation for a few hours at the Jerez Circuit clinic due to a concussion on his head and having suffered dizziness. Of course, tomorrow he will hit the track again without any problem. But it has not been the only incident, since another starring Efren Vazquez and Louis rossi he even forced training to stop for a few moments, although fortunately neither of them suffered any damage. Come on, the thing has been movidita.
