As lockdown restrictions across Europe begin to be slowly lifted, MotoGP™ riders are getting the chance to jump back on board motorcycles for the first time in over two months. Three stars of the sport were able to lap at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya today after guidelines across Catalonia allowed Team Ecstar Suzuki's Alex Rins, Petronas Sprinta Racing's Xavi Vierge and Kömmerling Gresini Moto3's Gabriel Rodrigo to step their training up.
Riders across all classes are getting the chance to head back out on track this week, in particular across Spain and Andorra. Social media posts from Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP's Maverick Viñales and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Pol Espargaro showed the pair enjoying the feeling of popping a wheelie once again earlier in the week. Now Rins has been able to head to a track on the MotoGP™ calendar after spending four hours just outside Barcelona on Thursday morning.
