Alcoba on the podium at Jerez

3 May 2021

Despite many difficulties, the Indonesian Racing Gresini Moto3 (FPS Automation branded) team has landed an important result in this early part o the 2021 season. It was – as usual in this class – a very exciting and dramatic race, one that unfortunately saw Gabri Rodrigo out of action too soon.

The Argentine rider, who was dominating in the early laps, lost control of his Honda machine #2 and was thrown over the handlebar at the fast turn seven – fortunately without any physical consequence. Alcoba, meanwhile, after being forced to a double long-lap penalty due to a decision taken by the race direction, did an excellent job in recovering as many places as possible and to stay in touch with the leading group until the final moments.

The key moment took place at the final corner of the race, when Denis Öncü crashes and takes Masia with him on the gravel trap, while Jeremy Alcoba smartly took the inside line to avoid contact and cross the line third. This is the Spaniard’s first podium of the season – the second of his Moto3 career – with the championship standings now looking a lot better for him.
