Debón confirmed with BQR Team for 2009

Debón confirmed with BQR Team for 2009

Experienced 250cc rider Alex Debón will return to the BQR Team in 2009, riding on Aprilia RSA machinery.

Alex Debón will participate in this year’s 250cc World Championship with an official Aprilia RSA bike, having reached an agreement to join the Barcelona-based BQR Team.

The move sees Debón returning to the team for whom he competed for three seasons from 2003-05, reuniting him with team boss Raúl Romero.

“I’m really happy to have signed with BQR again because I know Raul so well,” Debón stated. “Having spent three years together previously I trust in his abilities and trust the people around him.”

The veteran Spaniard added, “Obviously things are different this time around and we have all gained plenty of experience since I first rode for the team in the World Championship. I have learned a lot since then and the BQR Team have shown their strengths in recent seasons. I hope this new chapter will see us cash in on the work we started together six years ago and achieve our goals together. Our objectives will be to run at the front, to improve on the fourth place overall which I achieved last year and, why not, aim for the title.”
