As the Moto2™ grid heads back to Europe for the bwin Grand Prix České republiky in Brno, the attention will be firmly placed on the on-going battle between championship contenders Scott Redding and Pol Espargaro.

Despite Marc VDS Racing Team’s Redding coming third and Tuenti HP 40’s Espargaro fourth last time out, their battles in both qualifying and the race made the headlines and continue to create anticipation.

However it is not only that pair shaking things up in the intermediate class, as Espargaro’s teammate and Indy race winner Esteve Rabat is in great form, having taken his second victory this season and having put himself back into championship contention.

Italtrans Racing Team’s Takaaki Nakagami, who led for a significant period of the Indianapolis race and held his nerve to grab another podium, will be aiming to convert some of his outright pace into a first race win, whilst the charging Dominique Aegerter on his carXpert Technomag bike will be looking to get onto the podium once more this season.

Gino Rea lines up once again as a wildcard this year with his Gino Rea Race Team FTR, whilst Spanish rider Dani Rivas comes in as a permanent replacement for Brit Kyle Smith in the Blusens Avintia Team. Frenchman Lucas Mahias is the second wildcard rider with the Prosport Moto outfit.
