Hiroshi Aoyama: 2010 season review

Hiroshi Aoyama: 2010 season review

motogp.com looks back over the campaign of each premier class rider with a video which compiles the most pivotal moments of their year.

Arriving in the MotoGP class as the last-ever 250cc World Champion, Hiroshi Aoyama was aiming high and got his debut season off to a steady start with the Interwetten Honda team with a top-ten result in Qatar and similar finishes at Le Mans and Mugello.

Bad luck struck just five rounds into the 2010 World Championship for the Chiba born rider however when his crash in the warm up session at Silverstone and a consequential fractured vertebra halted his progress abruptly.

Returning after six races out Aoyama’s hard work in the gym paid off when he was able to secure a best result of seventh position in Malaysia, and he ended the season having collected 53 points despite missing a third of the Championship.

In 2011 the Japanese rider will continue his premier class quest with the Gresini team, and in the attached motogp.com video you can review his debut season in the elite category.
