Carlos Checa and Toni Elias

Spaniards Carlos Checa and Toni Elías occupy polar opposites of the MotoGP grid: The former is one of the Championship´s most experienced riders, the latter a contender hoping to show his full potential during his second premier class season.

This week´s 2006 Candidates section reviews the rise and finest moments of these two talented riders, both of whom have special motivation this season: Checa will be part of Hervé Poncharal´s Yamaha Tech 3 team with another novelty for him of Dunlop tyres. Elías will ride a RC211V in Fausto Gresini´s team alongside Marco Melandri.
