SECOND SPANISH 2016 MOTOGP ROUND
The MotoGP World Championship returns to Spain for the second round of the season on Iberian soil. After Jerez, now it's Barcelona's turn on the Catalunya Circuit, a particularly demanding track for bikes and riders.
The Aprilia riders, Alvaro Bautista and Stefan Bradl, would like to get back to the encouraging levels demonstrated in the first part of the season. The growth of the Aprilia RS-GP project, which proved straight away to be a good starting base, requires hard work, especially in light of the little time available and the overall competitive level that the championship has reached.
Therefore, for Aprilia Racing Team Gresini, the Catalunya GP represents another important exam, to be tackled with maximum concentration and drawing from everything learned during the first six races of the season. Some important help will arrive from Misano, where the Aprilia Test Team has completed two days of testing with Mike di Meglio and Stefan Bradl.
