Local star Barberá takes 125 Catalunya win

13 June 2004

Unlike the MotoGP and 250s, there was a dose of local joy in the 125cc Catalan Grand Prix as Valencian youngster Hector Barberá took his first victory of the season after a sensational fight-back from 23rd place.

Barberá recovered from a mechanical problem on the second lap to beat series leader Dovizioso with fellow Spaniard Pablo Nieto - who himself came through from a dreadful start which saw him finish the first lap in 17th - completing the podium.
