Red Bull MotoGP Academy set for Albacete showdown

The CEV Buckler tour heads to Albacete this weekend, with Southeast Spain playing host to the third round of the championship. Also the scene of the first race of the season, the circuit is predicted to experience hot conditions of around 30 degrees in the last event before the summer break.

Youngster Pol Espargaro leads the 125cc category, having won both of the 2006 races. The Catalan rider also had a brilliant debut at his home Grand Prix as a wildcard in the World Championship, entering into the points. Scottish rider Kev Coghlan is the only other rider to step onto the podium in both CEV races, and is looking for a win to close the gap on his Spanish rival.

German Jonas Folger, third in the title chase and also part of the Red Bull MotoGP Academy, could be one of the podium contenders, alongside 125cc World Championship riders Marc Marquez and Esteve Rabat.
