The FIM CEV Repsol passes the midpoint of the season this weekend with the fifth round at MotorLand Aragón after the last event at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. On this occasion the program consists of one race in Moto3™ and two races each in Moto2™ and the European Talent Cup.
Jeremy Alcoba (Laglisse Academy) arrives as leader of the FIM Moto3™ Junior World Championship after taking his first victory of the season in Barcelona, a win that – along with the third place achieved in the first race (where he won but had a 1.6 second penalty for going out of track limits) – puts him six points ahead of Barry Baltus (Sama Qatar Angel Nieto Team). He is 28 points ahead of Yuki Kunii (Asia Talent Team), who missed the last FIM CEV Repsol round due to injury but will race in Aragón.
In the Moto2™ European Championship, Edgar Pons (Baiko Racing Team) is the man to beat. The Baiko Racing Team rider is not only the category leader with 111 points against the 78 of Niki Rikhard Tuuli (Team Stylo Bike) in second place, but he has three consecutive victories from three consecutive poles. In Superstock 600, Alessandro Zetti’s (FAU55 El Señor de las Bolsas) excellent results in Barcelona have given him a strong hold on the category.
Izán Guevara (Cuna de Campeones) matched Edgar Pons to take his third consecutive victory in the ETC and arrives at MotorLand in a strong position: the Cuna de Campeones rider is 29 points ahead of Fermín Aldeguer (Bester Capital Dubai) and 33 ahead of Iván Ortolá (Sama Qatar Ángel Nieto Team). Daijiro Sako (Cuna de Campeones) will be looking to repeat his first podium of the season when he finished third behind Aldeguer in the last round of the FIM CEV Repsol.
The schedule for next Sunday’s races is as follows:
Moto2™ Race 1 (16 laps) 11.00
ETC Race 1 (14 laps) 12.00
Moto3™ (15 laps) 13.00
