Aleix Espargaro determined to continue top form at Misano
After three consecutive weekends of racing the MotoGP teams and riders return from a much needed week off to continue their battle for honours at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli this weekend. The Grand Prix of San Marino is the thirteenth round of the season and the second to take place in front of the passionate Italian supporters after the Mugello round back in June.
After a victory for reigning World Champion Jorge Lorenzo last time out at Silverstone the chase for the title is far from over, with Dani Pedrosa also still fighting hard despite the advantage currently held by Marc Márquez.
POWER ELECTRONICS Aspar rider Aleix Espargaró showed no signs of weariness during the recent triple-header, finishing as the top CRT at Indianapolis, Brno and Silverstone. It is a run he is determined to continue at Misano, a circuit that should also allow him to reduce the gap to the prototype machines. The Spaniard currently lies tenth overall in the championship on 68 points, a tally he is keen to add to this Sunday.
“We have been through an intense period of races and to be honest it was nice to spend a few days at home to disconnect. I haven’t exactly been resting because I competed in the Barcelona 24 hour car race but mentally I was able to recharge my batteries and get ready for Misano. I am really looking forward to racing there after being at circuits recently where we have been losing out a lot to the prototypes, like Silverstone or Brno. I am sure that things will be closer at Misano, which is a fun track and a place where I have good memories from the last few seasons. As always our objective will be to do our jobs to the best of our ability and continue to be the leading force in CRT.”
