Second group prepare for Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup opportunity

The second section of young riders, numbering 106 talented hopefuls, take to the Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana today for day 2 of the Red Bull Rookies Cup selection phase. Today's participants hail mainly from European soil, with Britain, Germany, France and Holland all represented, although there are also Australian, South African and American riders looking for their big chance to shine. All are aiming for the opportunity to be part of the lucky 20 to go through to the next stage.

Of the 70 riders to take part in yesterday's session, 11 will return tomorrow to join up with today's successful group. Amongst them are 6 Brits, 2 Spaniards, 1 German, 1 Italian and an Irishman.

The timetable for the day will be the same as yesterday, although the riders will go round in groups of 9-10 instead of 7. They will have 20 minutes to show their skills on a Metrakit 125cc bike.
