Fading Pesek heads home for Czech challenge

Valsir Seedorf Derbis Lukas Pesek will be the most motivated rider in the 125cc category when he takes to the track next week for the Cardion AB Grand Prix Ceske Republiky, competing at his home race as he looks to revitalise his title challenge.

The season has been a mixed one for the Czech rider, who started extremely promisingly in the lower cylinder class this term with four podiums and his first ever World Championship victory at the Chinese Grand Prix. With his maiden triumph he earned the distinction of becoming the first Czech competitor to win a 125cc race, and also the first to lead the overall standings.

Although crashes and a couple of uncompetitive rides have dropped Pesek off the pace somewhat, his return to Brno will likely turn many heads in his homeland as a result of a number of national records he has broken in the last two seasons.

The youngest Czech Grand Prix winner has also been the first on the 125cc podium (at Jerez in 2006) and is the most successful rider since 500cc race winner and 350cc championship leader Frantisek Stastny in the 1960s.

Currently in fourth overall in the classification, Pesek has 43 points to make up on championship leader Gabor Talmacsi.
