Overall, first MotoE season was a good one for Mike Di Meglio and Marc VDS, even if they were not able to fight for the Title, won by Matteo Ferrari. The French was able to score two podiums and win one race in Austria, proving he could be still competitive in a new category where one of the most difficult part was adapting to the new bikes.
Di Meglio finished the season with a 5th place overall scoring 63 points, a positive result for him and the team despite not being able to compete for the Championship, but thas was enough for the Team to put once again the faith on the ex 125cc World Champion, who will try to rise next season and fight for the Title.
This is what Mike said: "I am very happy to be able to continue one more year in Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS. 2019 has been a year of ups and downs. We started very well, but the falls in Misano slowed our progression and limited our chances of fighting for the title. MotoE are very short races in a very short championship, so there is no room for error. This first year has been one of learning and we have acquired experience that will be very useful for us to fight again for the title. In addition, I am sure that both the bikes and the tyres will evolve for next year and it will be very interesting to be able to live it in the first person"
Also Marc Van Der Straten, team owner, had something to say: "It's a pleasure for both the team and me to have Mike di Meglio as our rider. In addition to his talent and experience on a motorcycle, Mike has shown great dedication and ability to adapt to a new category in which he has already won a race. His personal values are aligned with those of the Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS family. I am sure that in 2020 we will continue to be successful together”.
