Spaniard Aron Canet was quickest and American Joe Roberts was second-best on Day One of an official Moto2 and Moto3 test Wednesday at Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto, in Spain.

Riding his Triumph-powered Fantic Racing Kalex on the series’ new Pirelli control tires, Canet turned a 1:41.136 during Wednesday’s second session on the 2.6-mile (4.4 km).

The All-Time Moto2 Lap Record at Jerez is a 1:40.640, which was set by Canet in 2023. 

Roberts led the third and final session of the day with a 1:41.158 on his OnlyFans American Racing Team Kalex, which was good enough for P2 on the Day One combined results sheet. Roberts has spent a lot of time training on a Pirelli-shod Yamaha YZF-R1 in his native California during the off-season.

British rider Jake Dixon finished the day third with a 1:41.164 on his CFMOTO Aspar Team Kalex.

The top 21 riders on Wednesday were separated by less than one second.

The top Moto3 rider on Day One was David Alonso, who turned a 1:44.356 on his Pirelli-shod GASGAS Aspar Team machine.
