Alzamora and Bianco make Derbi and Gilera debuts

Intense preparations for the 2003 125cc World Championship began at Jerez last weekend, with a glut of Aprilia riders joined on track by two notable debutantes. Emilio Alzamora lapped aboard the Derbi machine which he will ride on his return to the category he won back in 1999, whilst Stefano Bianco made his first appearance with Gilera. The Italian, who contested his first full season with Aprilia last year, has been brought in to replace Manuel Poggiali in the factory squad which lifted the title in 2001. The pair were joined on track by Alzamora´s Derbi team-mate Jorge Lorenzo and you can track their progress with our exclusive video footage.
