2017 Austin MotoGP Moto3 FP1 Result: Canet Clears Out

Aron Canet set a blistering final lap in Friday's first practice to take the top spot in warming temperatures at the Circuit of the Americas track near Austin Texas. Canet's 2'16.820 left him as the only rider to break into the 2'16s in the 45-minute practice.  

More than one second back was Romano Fenati, at 2'17.920. Fenati -- along with Canet -- spent much of the session as the only riders to lap in the 2'17s. Fenati looked ready to challenge for the top spot until Canet's last lap. Another three-tenths back was Enea Bastianini who remained in the top-five for much of the session. 

Joan Mir, race winner at Qatar and Argentina, came finished as the fourth-fastest rider, nearly two seconds off Canet's pace. Juanfran Guuevara rounded out the top five.
