Two riders, one goal: The top 10 at the Aragon Grand Prix

For the penultimate time this season, the Motorcycle World Championship makes a stop on European soil. So for the Gran Premio de Aragón, both Marcel Schrötter and local hero Jeremy Alcoba are hoping to be in the top 10 in all sessions and put on a great show for the fans.

The race in Aragon not only heralds the final phase of this year's World Championship season, it will also be the first of six remaining races for Marcel Schrötter in the German racing team, which is based in Memmingen, Bavaria, and for which he has contested six full seasons. After things did not always go easy for the Bavarian in the second half of the season, the 29-year-old wants to enjoy the time above all and collect many more world championship points, because, currently lying in eighth place in the overall standings, the Intact GP regular rider still has a chance to reach the top five in the overall standings. In 2021 Schrötter finished the Aragon Grand Prix in eleventh place, as well as the Misano GP two weeks ago.

For Jeremy Alcoba, the Aragon circuit is a very special one, as it is the closest to his home in Tortosa compared to the other Spanish World Championship circuits. The Moto2 rookie is trying to start the 14th race weekend of the season in a relaxed mood, despite all the anticipation and increased pressure from the numerous fans arriving. With his two consecutive top 10 results in Austria and Misano, the Spaniard wants to go one better at MotorLand Aragon and advance further into the top group. For him to succeed on Sunday, it will be essential to get a good qualifying result. Something that he and his team will focus on during this expectant weekend.

The Moto2 race will take place on Sunday as usual at 12:20 (CEST).
