Double race weekend ahead for Niki Tuuli and Ajo MotoE Team at Misano11/09/2019
The Finnish rider goes into the third round of the season as one of the top performers on the grid.
The FIM Enel MotoE World Cup returns to action this weekend, with the third round of the competition set to take place at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, where Niki Tuuli and the Ajo MotoE Team will participate in a double header of races. The Finn heads into the San Marino contest 15 points behind the leader in the Cup standings, having shown great speed in the first two races of this inaugural season.
Tuuli made history by becoming the first winner of a MotoE race at Sachsenring in July and then was again one of the fastest riders in Austria, where he had to deal with the challenge of riding his electric bike in the rain for the first time. Now the Ajo MotoE Team are looking forward to the San Marino and Riviera di Rimini round, at a track that Niki already knows well from his time in the Moto2 World Championship in 2018.
This weekend the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup will feature two races, the first taking place on Saturday 14th September at 4:15 pm and the second on Sunday 15th at 10:05 am local time. As a result, the E-Pole will be contested a day earlier than at previous rounds, taking place in this instance on Friday.

“The goal for the third round of the championship is to finish in the Top 3 in all sessions. This time we have two races, so we will do our best to be up in the top and to fight for the victory, as we need to make up for the mistake we made in Austria, where we only got one point. Also, Misano is a circuit that suits my riding style well, as it has long corners and that is where we can make a difference. I really like this kind of tracks. I know that we have great potential and that we can get a good result, we just have to stay focused and work as precisely as we can.”
