Espargaro has first Aprilia ride

Spanish rider Aleix Espargaro had his first test on an Aprilia this week at the Jerez test, with his BQR team having changed factories from Honda for this season.

Espargaro is a former 125cc National Champion who moved up to 250cc after Martin Cardenas' switch to Repsol Honda last season. The addition to the team of Pablo Nieto is the latest reshuffle in BQR Aprilia, and the two were on track at the rain-affected test.

Espargaro noted that the Aprilia was "bigger in some respects" compared to the Honda used in 2006.
