Alex Marquez & Alex Rins reach halfway point in their 2014 campaign

 In Moto3, News


The Sachsenring this week hosts the ninth round of the Moto3 World Championship, marking the halfway point of the season.

The Repsol riders in the Moto3 class reach the midway point of the campaign fully involved in the battle for the title. After two consecutive wins, Alex Marquez is just 7 points off series leader Jack Miller.

Teammate Alex Rins is 10 points off the top after taking his fourth podium of the year at Assen. Rins’ second place at the Dutch TT came after he overcame three microfractures in his foot, suffered at the previous round in Catalonia.

Alex Rins
“Over this past week I’ve worked intensely to get to Sachsenring as recovered as possible, because it is a track I like a lot. Last year I took the win and now I’m a few points off the leader, so we have to try not to make any mistakes.”

Alex Marquez
“The circuit is a little strange, as it is the smallest in the World Championship and very twisty. I think that things will be very tight there, because as it is such a short track it is hard to make a difference. Last year was my first time there, and I found it a little hard. We had a few problems, although in the end I placed fifth. I like the circuit, so this year we will try to avoid the same thing –because we had a tough time in the race. We will have to go out there to have fun and give our all in every session.”
