The second round of the FIM World Cup MotoE has come to a premature end for Avant Ajo MotoE and rider Niki Tuuli. In the morning, Tuuli made a promising start, matching his best times from last week. The Finn made solid progress throughout his eight laps of Jerez, with the best time of 1:48.992 at the end of the tests, finishing in tenth place in FP1.
Hours later, Tuuli crashed at turn six, halfway through FP2. The XNUMX-year-old has fractured his right wrist and will not be able to continue driving this weekend. He will shortly undergo surgery.
“We started the weekend with a good feeling. This morning we were matching our times from last week, which was a positive thing. However, I have yet to feel fully comfortable with the bike since getting back on it again this year. We will have to wait to see how my wrist injury comes along. I want to thank the team, and I'm sorry to end the weekend like this."
