Antonio Cairoli 
The pain and the ailments due to the injury now seem really just a memory. Now we only expect to see him recovering the perfect shape we are used to see. This will take a little time, because only from now the game starts to get really serious. With these premises who should read the two races of this weekend, adding the component of the high altitude, because the track of Leon is about 1,800 meters high above the sea level. Tony gains a sixth and a ninth place that enable him to maintain an excellent third place in the overall World Cup standings.

Glenn Coldenhoff
Glenn proved to be able to maintain the position in both heats, defending from the several attacks of his rivals. His growth is constant, especially from the point of view of the feeling with the new bike.
10th both race 1 and race 2. 9th in the overall of the World Championship.

Team Honda JTech
Bad luck for Damon Graulus who has fallen after the second turn in race 1 and he has been forced to retire. Nothing to worry about but, as a result of the fall, the Team preferred to let him stop, without racing the second manche.
Henry Jacobi leads two similar races, earning a 14th and a 13th place. He is 14 ° in the overall of the GP, and 20th in the World Championship classification.
