Moto2: Rosell back fro Aragon

"I don't want to set objectives but I am sure we can do well" - Elena Rosell.
Having been forced to abandon her planned grand prix debut after a nightmare practice at Assen, Elena Rosell is aiming to make history as the first female racer to start a Moto2 grand prix at Aragon this weekend.

The Mapfre Aspar team will once again run Rosell, this time on a third Suter alongside Julian Simon and Jordi Torres.

"I am really looking forward to going to Aragon and finishing what I started at Assen," said Rosell. "It will be nice to be running alongside the rest of the Moto2 riders in 'normal' conditions, at a circuit I already know.

"It will be nice to put the experience from Holland behind us, because it wasn't exactly what we wanted, especially because I have more experience on a Moto2 bike now and I am used to it, which gives me more confidence.

"I am much more familiar with the way the brakes and tyres work now and that will help me to enjoy myself on the track. I don't want to set objectives but I am sure we can do well."

If all goes to plan, Rosell will become first Spanish woman to race at World Championship level in front of her home fans on Sunday. Rosell is eighth in the Stock Extreme class of the Spanish CEV Buckler Championship.
