FIM CEV Repsol: Next stop, Le Mans

Thursday, 15 May 2014

This week sees the FIM CEV Repsol continue. The previous round in Jerez raised excitement as the inaugural event of the season; this time in Le Mans there’s a special sense of anticipation because for the first time ever, 48 riders have been called to compete in the FIM CEV Repsol Moto3™ on French soil, which is to coincide with the MotoGP™ World Championship event this coming weekend.

María Herrera (SPA-Honda) will defend her position on the home ground of rival co-leader and team-mate Fabio Quartararo (FRA-Honda), who can be expected to have the support of a crowd of fans.

Behind them and also tied on points in the overall rankings are Gabriel Rodrigo (SPA-KTM) and Andrea Migno (ITA-Kalex), acolytes of World Championship riders Aleix Espargaró and Valentino Rossi respectively. But they’ll all have to keep an eye on Jorge Navarro (SPA-Ioda) and Hiroki Ono (JPN-TSR) trailing them by just a few points. Also, three French riders have earned the right to measure themselves as wild card riders against the cream of motorcycling’s youth.
