First day of action for the Evan Bros. WorldSSP Yamaha Team at the Magny – Cours circuit, intermittently affected by bad weather. A situation that obviously limited the work of Lorenzo Baldassarri, who was thus momentarily forced to chase: in the combined classification of the two free practice sessions that took place Lorenzo took the 27th position.

The first session took place in mixed conditions, with the wet asphalt gradually drying out lap by lap. In these uncertain conditions, Balda tried to put together as many laps as possible, but avoiding risks and finishing in 3rd place. 

In the afternoon conditions improved, with the riders able to take advantage of the dry track in the final part of FP2. However, things did not go as hoped for Balda, who crashed without consequences in turn 3 and was thus forced to settle for 27th place. 

Tomorrow the Evan Bros. WorldSSP Yamaha Team will take to the track first at 10.25 for Superpole, then at 15.15 for Race 1.


Today we tried almost all the possible conditions. Unfortunately as soon as the track dried out completely, in FP2, I crashed. It was a shame, but that motivates me even more to give my best tomorrow“.
