With two races down in the 125cc category, Mattia Pasini has been on the receiving end of more than his fair share of misfortune. The Italian is yet to pick up a point in the lower cylinder category this season after a series of setbacks on both Qatari and Spanish soil. After having his bike break down at Losail, The Polaris World Racing rider was once again the victim of mechanical problems last Sunday, this time on the warm-up lap for the Gran Premio bwin.com de España.

Due to start from pole position for the Jerez crunch clash, Pasini was instead forced to start the sighting lap from pit lane and the race from last on the grid. Despite making his way up to tenth in the field, two laps later the predicted challenger for the vacant 125cc crown collided with British rider Bradley Smith, had to retire and stormed into his garage a very angry man. With Gabor Talmacsi, Lukas Pesek and Hector Faubel all adding to their cache, Pasini will have a lot of work to do if he is to get back into the running for glory this season.
