San Marino promises tough battle for 125cc class

San Marino promises tough battle for 125cc class

Who is in form and who is looking for improvement as the 125cc World Championship heads to Misano.

Comprehensively leading the way in 125cc, Mike di Meglio has a 44-point cushion between himself and Simone Corsi in the classification. The Frenchman took his most recent podium at Brno to put further space between himself and the Roman challenger, with a first World Championship in his sights.

Opening his win account in Brno, Stefan Bradl will aim to keep up his momentum when the series arrives at the San Marino round. Bradl is currently third in the standings in his full comeback year, having leapfrogged 2007 World Champion Gabor Talmacsi.

Joan Olive, Nico Terol, Bradley Smith, Pol Espargaro, Sandro Cortese and Scott Redding form the pursuing pack for the top spots in the 125cc class, with all having come close to –or in Redding´s case achieving- a first Grand Prix victory.

The Gran Premio Cinzano di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini takes place on August 31st, with practice sessions scheduled to begin on the preceding Friday.
