Female star Janakova gets her chance

Team Angaia Racing have dropped Italian rider Mattia Angeloni and replaced him with Czech sensation Marketa Janakova. Angeloni has had a difficult start to the season riding the Honda as team-mate to the impressive Julian Simon and definitely loses his place to Janakova for Assen and Rio, with the 16 year old female set to continue for the remainder of the season and start with a full-time ride in 2005 if she impresses.

"For the moment Marketa will form part of the team in Holland and Brazil but it is almost certain that this substitution will continue for the rest of the season so that we can have a look at her ahead of the 2005 World Championship," said an official statement from the team.
