Repsol presents 2012 riders

Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa are among the Repsol-backed riders on hand to present the Spanish company's 2012 two-wheel campaign.
Repsol has formally launched its motorcycling campaign for the 2012 season, with MotoGP riders Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa being joined in Madrid by other rider's in the company's talent roster.

Following the second MotoGP pre-season test of the season at Sepang, Stoner and Pedrosa arrived in Palacio de Deportes de la Comunidad de Madrid to kick start the new year alongside other riders backed by the Spanish petroleum company.

Those in attendance included Marc Marquez, who will look to go one better in Moto2 this season, Maverick Vinales, Alex Rins and Miguel Oliviera from the new Moto3 class, Álex Márquez, María Herrera, Francesco Bagnaia, Lorenzo Baldassarri (Campeonato de España de Velocidad), Toni Bou and Takahisa Fujinami (Trial).

Stoner, who dominated on the way to the 2011 MotoGP title, is hoping the presentation heralds the start of another successful season.

"This is really fantastic. I have been riding for a Spanish team in Repsol and developing as a rider in Spain was a very special experience for me. To be surrounded by people in this event is somewhere that I have always wanted to be. This is a great place for a presentation.”

"I am very happy to be here at the Repsol riders presentation,” added Pedrosa. “I really enjoy these events, because the people here give you a lot of support and a warm reception. It is also nice to be in the same place as the other Repsol riders —including the Trial competitors whom we don't see so often. We hope that this is the start of a good season for everyone.”
