GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 are down to a single-rider representation for MotoGP’s kick-off Grand Prix in Portugal. Still, thankfully Pol Espargaro is in full recovery mode after his crash during Practice2 at the Algarve International Circuit on Saturday afternoon.
The Spaniard hit the ground at Turn 10 after being caught out by an excellent rear tire and suffered an impact on his abdomen and back. After treatment at the track Pol was taken to the hospital in Faro for more checks and will be kept under observation for the weekend. He hopes to be on the way home early next week.
GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 will tackle the rest of the Grande Premio Tissot de Portugal with Augusto Fernandez in play.
