Forés crowned Stock Extreme Champion as Viñales, Morales and Molero all win at Albacete

Forés crowned Stock Extreme Champion as Viñales, Morales and Molero all win at Albacete

Another fantastic day of racing took place at Albacete on Sunday as 13,000 spectators witnessed victories for Isaac Viñales, Carmelo Morales and Angel Molero, whilst Javier Forés took the CEV Buckler Stock Extreme title.

A fifth consecutive victory for Motorrad Competición rider Javier Forés delivered the Spaniard the CEV Buckler Stock Extreme title at Albacete on Sunday, with two rounds of the 2010 campaign still to go.

The forced retirement of Javier del Amor on only the second lap due to a gear box problem proved a pivotal moment in the race, but Forés had to fight to the final lap to secure victory as BMW rider Santiago Barragán provided a stern challenge. It was not enough to prevent the win for Forés and gave Barragán his best result of the season so far in second, with Julián Mazuecos taking his first podium of the campaign in third.

A magnificent battle took place in the 125GP category where Alex Rins had been the early leader, but Maverick Viñales and Miguel Oliveira quickly asserted themselves at the front of the race. The trio appeared to have all three podium places wrapped up as the end of the race drew near but with two laps to go Oliveira fell and was forced to retire, allowing Italian Mattia Tarozzi to take third place behind Viñales and Rins. Having led the standings going into the round Oliveira now sits third, one point behind Rins and 12 off new leader Viñales with two rounds remaining.

The Moto2 class also saw a new leader emerge after the weekend’s activities as Carmelo Morales moved into top spot thanks to victory at Albacete. The Spaniard overcame the back problems that have dogged him since his World Championship wild card ride at Montmeló in July to establish a seven-point lead over Kev Coghlan and Dani Rivas, with Jordi Torres now nine points adrift. Torres held off Roman Ramos for second as they completed the podium, with Coghlan fourth and Rivas – who had led going into this round – finishing in eighth.

Angel Molero notched up his second win of the season in the Kawasaki Ninja Cup and in the process moved to the top of the standings with a single round to go. Antonio Rodas and Adrián Menchén were second and third respectively, with the retirement of Erik Robles proving to be the end of his challenge for the Cup which can now only be claimed by one of either Molero, Menchén or Alex Mariñelarena.

The sixth round of the CEV Buckler takes place at Valencia on November 14th.
