It will be a still-tender Julian Simon who lines up for his home race at Jerez this weekend, but the Spaniard is nonetheless counting down the days before his second 250cc race for the Repsol Honda team.

Speaking to motogp.com at a presentation in Madrid on Sunday, the young Spaniard expressed his eagerness to get back on track after a strong debut in Qatar. "Jerez will be a very special race, and I'm up for it after a pretty good result in my debut race, despite being injured," commented Simon.

The 250cc rookie also spoke about his ongoing injury trouble, suffered at the Circuito de Jerez at the MotoGP Official Test last month. "It still bothers me a little when I'm riding, but I'll be even further on the road to recovery when I get to the next race."
