Telefonica Movistar Honda make official presentation

Team Telefónica Movistar Honda's twin assault on the MotoGP and 250cc World Championships was officially unveiled in Barcelona on Wednesday night. Sete Gibernau, Colin Edwards, Dani Pedrosa and Hiroshi Aoyoma sat alongside their respective Team Managers Fausto Gresini and Alberto Puig over a special dinner for the world's press at a restaurant close to the Catalunya Circuit, venue of the MotoGP Official Test this week, and revealed their hopes for the new season.

"The arrival of Edwards to our team completes a solid structure," commented Gresini, who enters his third season with Honda in MotoGP. "Last year with Sete we reached very high standards but this season we have doubled our chances of winning."

Puig, who takes charge of the 250cc effort after masterminding the rise of 125cc World Champion Dani Pedrosa, was somewhat more cautious as he prepares his riders for their rookie seasons in the category. "Winning races won't be easy this year," commented the Spaniard. "Our focus lies purely on the successful adaptation of the two riders. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Honda for the confidence they have shown in us, which is made evident by the arrival of Aoyama to our team."
