Julián Simón:
“Brno is a great circuit to race at, I love it. It’s long and difficult and that makes it much more exciting, you have to work hard to ride quickly round there. I’m eager to get back to work as the championship has been sensational so far and we are being very consistent, which I think is crucial if you want to think about winning a world championship. Race by race we are working positively and fortunately the results have come with it. This weekend I hope to continue like at the last two races and will aim for another victory on Sunday if possible. If not, i will focus on finishing the race and picking up as many points as possible. These past two weeks I lowered my training intensity slightly, just to disconnect a little, so I am keen to get to Brno to get on the Aprilia again.”

Sergio Gadea:
“To be honest, the break came at a really good time for me, and I enjoyed a few days in Madrid and some in Ibiza to relax. After the crash in the UK I want to wipe the slate clean and start again. Everything has been going well for us this season and we can’t get down over a small error which was due to the rain. We simply have to continue working as we have done so far. Brno is a track I really enjoy and have had good results at in the past. It is quite fast and long, which means we’ll have to work well on setting up the bike to not lose power anywhere. I’m sure Julián will continue to be strong, and we mustn’t drop any more points to be able to challenge him. Whatever happens, we aim to keep our consistency up. This year we have had a great base setting and I’m certain that at Brno I can get back onto the podium.”

Bradley Smith:
“I’m hoping for a positive race in Brno, I’m extremely determined to make it a good result after the crashes at Sachsenring and Donington. Brno is a technical and wide track, with ample opportunities for overtaking. In the 125s it will be difficult to escape because it’s another long circuit where slipstreaming is key. It’s a bit like Mugello, in terms of length and the combination of esses and elevation changes. That means it will be crucial to get the set-up right at Brno, and to be strong at the end of the race. I hope that after the last two wet races, we can enjoy another sunny weekend and good conditions for racing.”
