125cc category to contest latest chapter in Germany

125cc category to contest latest chapter in Germany

Simón, Smith, Iannone and Gadea involved in fierce title battle.

Seven races into the 2009 125cc season, the competition is as fierce as ever. Round eight sees the young guns hitting Sachsenring for the Alice Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland, with twenty points –less than that awarded for a single victory- splitting the top four.

Julián Simón heads the mathematical minefield that is the 125cc standings, where half points have been introduced after a curtailed first race of the year. The Bancaja Aspar rider holds a 5.5 point advantage over teammate Bradley Smith, with his British colleague holding the upper hand in victories by two to one.

Another rider with a pair of wins to his name, Andrea Iannone is a further fourteen points back, suffering from a certain amount of inconsistency since his storming start to the year. He has come under pressure from third Bancaja Aspar rider Sergio Gadea, the winner of the last round in Assen.

Sachsenring hosts the home race for Assen poleman Sandro Cortese and local star Stefan Bradl, the winner of the 2008 race.
