Espargaro: “This is one of the highlights of my season”

Espargaro: “This is one of the highlights of my season”

Pol Espargaro is looking forward to the “amazing feeling” of racing in front of his home fans at the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya.

Espargaro will be looking for a good performance in front of his adoring home fans by battling with his teammate and challenging for the leading satellite bike position under the Catalan sun. The Spaniard determinedly bounced back from his recent arm pump surgery with an impressive showing in Mugello where he seized sixth and will look to go one step further at his home Grand Prix. 

Pol Espargaro: “Round 7 means it's time for my home Grand Prix and of course, this is one of the highlights of my season, especially as it's also sponsored by our title partner Monster Energy! To hear my fans cheering is an amazing feeling and I will do my very best to please them particularly as I grew up very close to this circuit, therefore it doesn't get any more of a home GP than this for me! Mugello was quite a positive race and most importantly a definite improvement after my recent arm surgery and so, I intend to do even better this weekend as I was able to start training again. I definitely have some good memories of racing at this track, like winning the Moto2 race from pole in 2013 which was the year I became champion and I aim to add another one to the collection this time. We also have a test after the race which will be very useful as we have a few things to adjust and amend, so I look forward to this week at home and I can't wait to get the show on the road!”
