Title challengers look for continued consistency at Brno

Title challengers look for continued consistency at Brno

A full year has now passed in the 125cc class without a back-to-back winner and after nine unpredictable, exciting and combative races so far this season the front runners will be looking to consolidate their title challenges with continued consistency. The series so far has seen five different victors, including three for leader Dani Pedrosa and two each for his closest rivals Stefano Perugini and Lucio Cecchinello, but Pedrosa has only finished outside the top four on three occasions and it is this consistency which has contributed to a 20 point advantage over Perugini.

However, the combative Italian veteran seems to be getting stronger with each passing race and his latest conquest came at the last round in Germany, where he snatched victory from Casey Stoner on the final laps. That debut podium for Stoner will give him confidence to challenge for victory again this weekend, whilst his team-mate and manager Cecchinello looks to get his own season back on track after taking just fourteen points from the last four races.

Stoner is not the only youngster on the hunt for his first win this weekend, as podium regulars Andrea Dovizioso, Alex De Angelis and Pablo Nieto all look to earn their first taste of the winner's champagne, whilst Steve Jenkner and Hector Barbera will be looking to add to their solitary victories earlier in the season. Mika Kallio is set to make his debut with KTM whilst sacked World Champion Arnaud Vincent has yet to announce whether he has arranged ride for this weekend.
