World Cup fever hits Circuit de Catalunya

World Cup fever has inevitably reached the Catalunya Circuit, which is situated just 30 minutes from Barcelona. A number of World Championship riders were involved in a special photo opportunity with their countries' flags, with Argentina, Australia, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the USA all represented. With the latter involved in a crunch tie against the Italy on Saturday, championship frontrunners Nicky Hayden and Loris Capirossi also posed with their national teams' football shirts.

Alex Hofmann, John Hopkins, Chris Vermeulen, Andrea Dovizioso, Jakub Smrz, Joey Litjens, Fabricio Perren, Dani Pedrosa, Thomas Lüthi, Makoto Tamada, James Ellison and Randy de Puniet were all wrapped in their national banners, and will have a keen interest in more than one sporting event this weekend.
