2019 Jerez Moto2 Test Day 2 Times: Alex Marquez Beats Brad Binder As Wind Plays A Role

Stiff winds hindered the Moto2 riders on the second day of testing at the Jerez test, though the heavier, more powerful bikes were not quite as susceptible to the conditions as the Moto3 bikes were. Alex Marquez finished the day as fastest, just shy of Luca Marini's best time from Wednesday, the Marc VDS rider finishing just under a tenth quicker than Brad Binder on the factory KTM.

Jorge Navarro put the Speed Up into third, a fraction slower than Binder, while Lorenzo Baldassarri ended the session as fourth fastest on the Pons Kalex. Yesterday's fastest man Luca Marini could not match his own speed from yesterday, the Sky VR46 rider nearly three tenths slower than Wednesday, and a few thousandths quicker than Sam Lowes on the Gresini Kalex. 

The test concludes on Friday, leaving the Moto2 and Moto3 teams to pack up and head to Qatar, to get their final chance to prepare for the start of the 2019 season.

Good to see Binder up front on the KTM fighting the Kalex hords. This is going to be a great season.

Martin will be there sooner than later. Bezzecchi, clearly still getting his footing
