Gino Borsoi on Aspar team's 125cc podium run

Gino Borsoi on Aspar team's 125cc podium run

The Bancaja Aspar team have started the 2007 season from where they left off, with two victories from the first two races of the year in the 125cc category. The last time that a rider from Jorge Martinez' lower cylinder class squadron failed to take victory was at last year's race at Motegi, won by World Championship runner-up Mika Kallio, and since then the Spanish team have made the top step of the podium their own through last year's titlist Alvaro Bautista, Hector Faubel and new addition Gabor Talmacsi.

Since missing out on victory on Japanese soil, the Bancaja Aspar team have had two riders on the podium at every race. Talmacsi and Faubel's duel in Qatar illustrates the competitive nature between team-mates, as the duo battled for victory right up until Faubel's slipstreaming manoeuvre on the line. Gino Borsoi from the team spoke to motogp.com about the atmosphere inside the garage.

"The competition between the riders is great, but it is helpful for everyone. The 125cc team are very supportive of each other and always keen to help each other out, because a fast rider helps his team-mate to get where he is and do the same for him in return. The team is strong and competitive because of the great talent that they have, and this is helping a lot," said the former rider.

Aspar riders were on the podium at every race in 2006 apart from the French Grand Prix at Le Mans (where Bautista suffered a mechanical problem and finished fourth), and Borsoi is happy that this run is continuing this year.

"We have been lucky enough to continue our good form in the opening two races. All the staff are prepared, the mechanics are doing a great job and the atmosphere is very friendly in the garage," commented the Italian. "Everybody is doing their best, and we are always looking forward to getting out on track and showing what we can do. Our riders are amongst the best in the championship and, even though we are lucky to have them onboard, we also have the skills to keep them at the top of their game."
