Jorge Lorenzo at CEV Buckler for debut of Ricard Cardús

Tuesday, 20 April 2010

The World Championship rider was present at the Circuit de Catalunya at the weekend to witness the debut of the Catalan rider in the Moto2 category of the Spanish National Championship.

The postponement of the Grand Prix of Japan allowed Jorge Lorenzo the time to attend the opening round of the 2010 CEV Buckler (Spanish National Championship) on Sunday, where he watched friend and training partner Ricard Cardús make his debut in the Moto2 category at the Circuit de Catalunya.

Lorenzo sponsors the participation of Cardús in the Laglisse team, for whom he rides a Suter MMX alongside Carmelo Morales, Jorge Castellanos and Colombian Santiago Hernández. The four bikes run with the logo ‘XFuera’, which is a signature slogan of the 2009 MotoGP World Championship runner-up.

Lorenzo was supposed to travel to Berlin last Saturday to fulfil a personal sponsorship commitment, and from there his plan was to fly onwards to Tokyo to begin his preparations for the Grand Prix of Japan. The postponement of the event due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland however allowed Lorenzo to see Cardús’ debut in person, as he finished fourth having competed for the podium all the way to the finish.
