De Angelis, facing a season of truth in 250cc

Alex de Angelis continues to establish himself as one of the most important riders in 250cc. Changing teams for 2006, he will ride for the Aspar team in the quarter litre category as their only rider. He was a one of the fastest in this week´s Catalunya Test, just off the times set by Jorge Lorenzo.

The Aprilia rider is confident of his chances for the season, but also aware of the wealth of competitive riders in the category. In an exclusive interview with motogp.com, de Angelis expressed his hope that the Aspar-Aprilia team´s experience would be a springboard for success.

"We still need some time to finish coordinating ourselves, but I´m part of a strong experienced team, and with my Aprilia history I believe that we will be at a high level right from the start" said de Angelis in his Italian interview.
