Iker Lecuona and Xavi Vierge complete fruitful tests at rollercoaster Portimão
Iker Lecuona and Xavi Vierge have completed two more days of testing in preparation for the 2022 Superbike World Championship season.
Two very important days for the Team HRC riders, who were able to ride their CBR1000RR-R FIREBLADES at the spectacular Portuguese circuit of Portimão for the first time. The undulating track is very different to that of Jerez, where the team completed its first three test sessions.
Particularly on day one, which brought sunny conditions and a maximum temperature of around 20°C, both Iker and Xavi were able to make the most of the available track time, working with their respective teams to both adapt to the new category and help develop their Honda bikes, work that continues at full speed.
With just enough to pack up, Team HRC will be back on track in a few days’ time, returning to the Andalusian track of Jerez de la Frontera for another test session scheduled to take place on 22-23 February.
