MotoGP Aragon: Barbera chasing Baz for Open class honours

"There are five races to go and everything is possible" - Hector Barbera.
Having led the MotoGP Open class since round one in Qatar, Hector Barbera heads to Aragon chasing Loris Baz after the Frenchman's shock fourth place at a dry-wet-dry Misano.

Those 13-points - by far the most for an Open class competitor this season - propelled the Forward Yamaha rider ahead of Barbera by five points, with five rounds to go.

Barbera, who could be joined at Avintia Ducati by Baz next season, said:

“The Grand Prix of Aragon will be like my first final, because after what happened in Misano Loris Baz is leading the Open class by five points. There are five races to go and everything is possible, but we have to give our 300% in every single race until the end.

“My motivation is high and I'm looking forward to race in Aragón, it is a wide track, with long straights so should be good for our bike. I'm in a great shape and very excited, and I'll have an advantage: the support of my home crowd.”
