Carchano debuts in new category

Jordi Carchano makes his debut for new team Stop and Go this week, the outfit with which he will make the leap up to 250cc. The Catalan rider is excited about this challenge and admits that the quarter litre category is much better suited to his physique.

The young Spaniard has been conscientiously preparing himself for this new adventure throughout the winter months, following an intense training regime designed to aid his adaptation to 250cc. In an interview with motogp.com, Carchano gave his first impressions of the change after a few days testing in Catalunya.

"I´ve been very comfortable on the bike, here in Barcelona we went round with a standard Honda and I was only two or three seconds off my would-be rivals. When all our material is available I think that I will be in a position to fight against them without problems" he explained.

The Stop and Go team will return to work within the next two weeks at the Valencia Circuit, undertaking a couple of sessions before the Official Test in Catalunya- in which teams from all three MotoGP classes will take part.
