No pressure for 250cc returnee Debon

No pressure for 250cc returnee Debon

Perhaps unfairly overlooked in some quarters as a contender for the 250cc title in his comeback season in the quarter litre class, Lotus Aprilias Alex Debon believes that he can provide a shock with a successful year onboard the Aprilia RSA developed by the Spaniard himself, making his rivals sit up and take notice.

Perhaps unfairly overlooked in some quarters as a contender for the 250cc title in his comeback season in the quarter litre class, Lotus Aprilias Alex Debon believes that he can provide a shock with a successful year onboard the Aprilia RSA developed by the Spaniard himself, making his rivals sit up and take notice.

Debon finished fourth at the opening lower cylinder category night test earlier this week, and his team certainly have experience of victory in Losail under their belt courtesy of their former rider and twice 250cc Qatar race winner Jorge Lorenzo. Debon has the latest Aprilia machinery at his disposal, an evolution of the LE biked used by Lorenzo in 2007 and currently run by team-mate Aleix Espargaro.

At the moment nobody is counting on us, especially because Ive been out of regular competition for two years, but I hope that little by little I can give people something to think about with my results, says the 31 year-old ahead of his full return to the World Championship.

I dont have any pressure or fear ahead of this year; my only challenge is to enjoy myself and aim to do my best. I know that we can do great things, because the RSA is very powerful and has given off good vibes all preseason.
