CEV Repsol action resumes at Albacete this weekend
After a break of more than two months, the CEV Repsol starts again at the same venue that held the last race in June, the Albacete Circuit. And it will start with a double racing session this September, as apart from this round, the riders will compete again in this series at the Navarra circuit only two weeks later, next September 22nd.
The small-displacement class of the CEV Repsol arrives Albacete with very close overall standings ‒there is only a 21-point difference between the first and the eighth‒. The rider from Cadiz Marcos Ramirez is the current leader thanks to his consistent results, followed by Bryan Schouten, three points behind, and by Maria Herrera, ten points away. The rider from Toledo will take part in the races in Albacete and Navarra before her already confirmed participation in the MotorLand Aragon Grand Prix as a wild card.
In the intermediate category, Roman Ramos is the man to beat. The rider from Cantabria has one victory and 3 second places after the 4 first races and is the only Moto2 rider that has been on the podium in all rounds. 19 points behind him, Alejandro Mariñelarena will try to repeat his win from last June in Albacete, where he finished just ahead of Ramos.
The main name in this class is Xavi Fores. After a hectic summer in which he was close to not being able to keep competing in the CEV Repsol, the current overall leader will take part in the double round that will be held at the La Mancha track. Two races where his closest rivals, Carmelo Morales, at 14 points, and Ivan Silva, at 23, will try to reduce his advantage in the overall standings.
