Video: FIM CEV Repsol Valencia Preview
This weekend Valencia sees the start of the nineteenth edition of the Championship, which will have the same categories as in 2015: Junior Moto3 World Championship, Moto2 and Superbike European Championships.
The Comunitat Valenciana Circuit will host the opening round of the new FIM CEV Repsol season, a championship that is considered the threshold of the Motorcycling World Championship. 87 riders of more than 15 different nationalities give a great international presence to the series, which will have again 8 rounds, 6 of them in Spain, one in Portugal and one in France.
The objective of all of them will be taking the place of Nicolo Bulega (Moto3), Edgar Pons (Moto2) and Carmelo Morales (Superbike), winners in 2015 and, in the case of the first two, already World Championship riders after their brilliant performance at the FIM CEV Repsol. The Championship has a well-deserved reputation as a talent mine, where started, among others, the current Repsol riders of the Moto3 World Championship, Aron Canet (candidate to the Junior World Champion title in 2015 until the last round) or Jorge Navarro (runner up in Moto 3 at the 2014 FIM CEV Repsol).
The first round of the FIM CEV Repsol will have 5 races, two in Moto2 and Moto3, and one in Superbike:
11:00 – Moto2 Race 1
12:00 – Moto3 Race 1
13:00 – Superbike Race
14:00 – Moto2 Race 2
15:00 – Moto3 Race 2
