Aragon GP Preview

 In News

For the second time in its short history, the Motorland Aragón circuit will hold this weekend a Motorcycling World Championship round, just before the Continental Circus starts its tour around Asia and Australia. The Repsol riders will have their third “home” Grand Prix after the races in Jerez and Catalunya. Dani Pedrosa, Casey Stoner and Andrea Dovizioso will look for another victory in MotoGP, while Marc Márquez, who will focus in reducing the difference with the overall standings leader, could achieve his third consecutive victory in Moto2.

Casey Stoner, leader of the MotoGP standings with a 35-point advantage, will try to repeat his win of last year at the Aragon track, the circuit awarded by the IRTA —teams and riders association— as the best 2010 Grand Prix. The Australian rider of the Repsol Honda Team is very consistent, as he was able to get on the podium in all the races he has finished —he has 11 consecutive podiums— and firmly leads the Motorcycling World Championship premiere category thanks to his seven victories in the 13 races already held.

His team mate Dani Pedrosa arrives to Motorland Aragon looking forward to compete after missing the last home Grand Prix —Catalunya—. After his second positions at Indianapolis and Misano, the Repsol rider will try to improve his position to get his third victory of the season. Andrea Dovizioso does not want to settle with the third overall position and will keep fighting for podiums that would help him get to the runner-up spot. The Italian of the Repsol Honda Team is having his best season in MotoGP and will try to get on the podium again after finishing fifth in the last two Grand Prix.
