Barberá goes one better at the Sachsenring

Barberá goes one better at the Sachsenring

Pramac Ducati rider Héctor Barberá collected valuable points after an exciting battle throughout today’s eni Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland race at the Sachsenring circuit.

Starting from 10th place, Barberá lost ground at the start but retook positions on the first lap, showing phenomenal early confidence with his Ducati Desmosedici. He was locked in a captivating five-rider battle for sixth that included both Ducati Factory riders Hayden and Rossi, as well as Honda riders Bautista and Bradl. The 25-year-old rider rode with typical aggression, producing a fantastic ride under intense pressure to keep the group at bay. But with five contestants, all ready to fight to achieve the best result possible, Barberá had to settle for ninth to finish just one second off from Valentino Rossi’s sixth place.

Héctor Barberá

"I’m really happy. It was the best and the most enjoyable race of this 2012 campaign. I fought with the Ducati Factory riders and I finished the race between Valentino and Nicky. But the most important point was that I had a great race pace and the gap from the top three MotoGP riders wasn’t too large. Now I want to continue on this way, trying to enjoy riding, like today."
