Jerez Moto2 Test Thursday Times: Bezzecchi Fastest, Canet Impresses

Marco Bezzecchi has ended the day as the fastest of the Moto2 riders, the Sky VR46 rider taking four tenths off Remy Gardner's best time from Wednesday. But it was Aron Canet who impressed, the rookie building on a fast time yesterday to finish second on the Speed Up. Red Bull KTM Ajo's Jorge Martin ended the day in third on the Kalex, the Spaniard still suffering with a leg injury picked up at a private test, while Thomas Luthi was fourth quickest, half a second behind Bezzecchi.

Petronas rider Jake Dixon suffered a heavy crash, breaking a finger in his right hand, and was forced to fly home for medical treatment.

Impressive time from Joe Roberts on the Kalex chassis, less than a second from the top... after two years in the abyss on the NTS and second-hand KTM, hopefully he can show some progress this year!

Excited to see Joe Roberts show his stuff! Moto2 is just full of talent, so many big names!  Everyone in the top 10, Bastianini, Gardner, Digi, Fernando, and more!  I wonder what happened to Dalla Porta! Adjustment to bigger classes seems to challenge some more than others.
