Di Meglio looking forward to strong battle in Jerez

Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider Mike di Meglio is expecting a hectic and exciting battle from the fifth row of the grid when round two of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup kicks off in Jerez tomorrow morning.

Record track temperatures that peaked at over 60 degrees meant conditions during the E-Pole session could not have been more demanding for man and machine at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto this afternoon.

Di Meglio quickly regained his confidence and consistent rhythm in FP3 this morning after a crash denied him crucial track time yesterday afternoon.

The Frenchman’s priority in FP3 was finding the optimum front and rear set-up to launch a strong attack in E-Pole.

Rather than chasing a fast lap time this morning he also decided to concentrate on adapting to a more aggressive riding style.

E-Pole started with ambient temperature nudging close to a scorching 40 degrees and di Meglio was able to post a best lap time of 1:49.525.
