Granado sets new lap record to beat Aegerter in Jerez Test

Aegerter, winner of Tuesday’s race simulation, had long been the rider to beat at the second pre-season test in Andalucia. The Swiss star set a new lap record in said race simulation, then went quicker again on Wednesday morning – a 1:47.106 – to further demonstrate his superiority at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto. However, Granado’s final outing of the test saw him set his fastest time, giving him the bragging rights ahead of the opening World Cup encounter of 2021 at the end of April. The duo were nearly half a second clear of the chasing pack, a real gauntlet thrown down.
