One minor bombshell that’s emerged from the results of Round 5 of the CEV Championships at Albacete is that Pere now appears to have completely switched teams.
Initially when he was replaced in the Aspar WC 125cc squad by Adrian Martin, there was no official talk from the team about him leaving altogether – indeed he was in the box, wearing Aspar colours, at the following race at Misano – and we had assumed that he would continue to compete for the Aspar Team in the Spanish CEV championships, as he had done up to that point.
Something has changed since then though, with a race report on Motociclismo.es containing the following words…
“…después de dejar las filas del Team Aspar y estar ahora defendiendo los colores del ALPO Atlético de Madrid.”
This translates roughly as:
“…having left the ranks of the Aspar Team and now racing in the colors of Alpo Atletico de Madrid.”
We’re surprised at the lack of coverage of the change, and if the split from Aspar is permanent then we’re sad, but hope that Pere’s career will progress unhindered.
We wish him all the best at the new team – and we hope that we can bring you more news of how he is getting on in due course.
