Marco Maddii: “Let me start by congratulating Escandell, who today won the 125cc Spanish Championship. In Fermo the riders were amazing. Guyon won one race and was second overall. Fueri is still the red plate holder and Valk is second. These are such positive results for the European races. There’s still a lot of work we’ve to do but we’re going in the right direction”.
