Moto3: Team presentation for Repsol

"I'm around 80% fit, so that won't stop me from going strong" - Alex Rins.
Repsol-backed Moto3 World Championship riders Miguel Oliveira and Alex Rins officially launched their 2012 campaign with a launch ceremony in Madrid.

The pair were joined by Repsol's CEV Spanish championship riders Álex Márquez, María Herrera, Francesco Bagnaia and Lorenzo Baldassarri as they showed off their new racing livery.

“We are a team with everything in place to do well this year, so all that we need now is to put the hard work in,” said Oliveira, who made eleven 125GP starts last season. “Next week is the final official test of the season at Jerez and we will be trying new things there and giving our all".

Reigning CEV champion Rins, who dislocated a shoulder in a motocross accident in January, added: "We have the Jerez test next week and I am almost fully recovered from my shoulder injury, just in time. I'm around 80% fit, so that won't stop me from going strong. I hope to do the best that I can and adapt well to the bike".

Avintia Racing's Maverick Vinales will also be backed by Repsol in Moto3 this year.
