The Chang International Circuit in Thailand is a fast 4.54-kilometer MotoGP and World Superbike circuit. Alberto was able to make his riding skills overcome his obvious height and weight disadvantage compared to his smaller competitors.
“Great race today, finishing second! I’d like to dedicate this podium to my friend and fellow racer Afridza Munandar who passed away earlier this month in an Asia Talent Cup race. I’ll be pushing again for the win in Race 2 tomorrow,” said Troy.
Race 2 will be tomorrow. Alberto is supported by Honda Philippines, Italtrans, Motoworld, Dickies, Century Hotel, AiM Datalogger and Access Plus.
