Aboard the Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2 Kalex machine, Sam Lowes delivered a master class victory in today's Spanish Grand Prix at the Jerez circuit.
Started from the pole position, the 25-year-old British rider took the lead on the second lap, keeping it until the checkered flag thus claiming his first win of the season. Lowes rode a smooth steady race while around him all hell broke loose with nine riders all hitting the deck and walking off with heads bowed.
Lowes rode a flawless race with Jonas Folger who followed him at short distance up to 10 laps to go, then he opened a gap on the German crossing the finish line with more than a two-second gap. Spaniard Alex Rins climbed to the third step of the podium.
‰ÛÏIt was a long race, no doubt! I knew that Folger had a good pace and I knew that also Rins was in the game, so I was expecting a tough race," Lowes said.
