Tech 3 Yamaha rider Pol Espargaro is hoping a return to home soil for the fourth round of the 2014 MotoGP World Championship season will give him the 'boost' he needs to 'ride even harder'.

The youngster has enjoyed a respectable start to his MotoGP tenure, but the Spanish Grand Prix and the return to European soil gives Espargaro confidence that he can push just that bit harder for the home fans.

A circuit he has previously won at in both 125GP and Moto2, Espargaro is looking forward to seeing how the Yamaha YZF-M1 fares.
