Paddock Press: Aguilar on Elias´ 2008 season

Paddock Press: Aguilar on Elias´ 2008 season

Spanish press review of Toni Elias´ `up and down´ campaign.

Catalunya Radio´s Damia Aguilar is the latest journalist to take part in the Paddock Press series, reviewing Toni Elias´ year in Ducati. As well as his thoughts on 2008, Aguilar also builds up expectations for 2009 in the accompanying video.

`Toni is perhaps a rider with ups and downs, who´s the kind who struggles with the bike until he gets it right -and he gets it perfect, we saw in Germany what he could do when he received new parts from Ducati,´ says the Spanish journalist.

`Being Honda´s third factory rider is very important for him, and it means that next season will really be `his´ season, `his´ big chance -he will have to demonstrate what he´s really able to do. 2009 should be his big break because of the bike he will receive.´

The man whom Elias replaces in San Carlo Honda Gresini, Shinya Nakano, has his season reviewed in today´s Paddock Press double bill.
