The FlexBox HP 40 completes its team and will be Héctor Garzó who will join Lorenzo Baldassarri for next season.

After the test days at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo, which it was the first time for Garzó with the Kalex, the sensations from the beginning were very good both for the rider and for the team. Garzó completed two test days successfully, showing a quick adaptation to both the motorcycle and the team and ended up being one of the fastest in the overall of the test. These results impressed the team for their speed and adaptability. A successful test that has served to confirm the expectations that already had of the rider.

Héctor Garzó is 21 years old and is a native of Valencia. This last season has competed both in the European Championship of Moto2, which is the current runner-up, and also in the MotoE World Cup, finishing in the fourth final position and achieving 3 podiums in the 6 races disputed.

With his signing up for the FlexBox HP 40 , Garzó will face his first full season in the Moto2 World Champonship and both the team and the rider are already eager to start working to face this new and challenging project that they have ahead.
