The summer break is over and the MotoGP world championship will start its second half of the season next weekend in Brno/Czech Republic with the Grand Prix Ceske republiky. All classes will reunite in the Czech Republic after the MotoGP class had a single appearance in the United States before the summer break.
Alex de Angelis will once again jump in for the injured Hiroshi Aoyama, who fractured a vertebra during a crash in the Warm up for the British Grand Prix in Silverstone and is now recovering from this injury at home in Barcelona. De Angelis likes the track in Brno and is especially looking forward to the official MotoGP test on Monday after the race, which he wants to use to get a better feeling with the Honda RC212V.
On Wednesday prior the Grand Prix weekend De Angelis and his MotoGP Honda will have a performance in the streets of Vienna, where MotoGP will meet the city and the Austrian fans. As Vienna is the home city of Interwetten, the main sponsor of the Interwetten Honda MotoGP Team, De Angelis will also visit the head quarter of the company and meet and greet their staff members.
Alex de Angelis:
"I am happy that once again I am on the MotoGP Honda in Brno. Honda will give me some new electronic parts which will help to make the set up of the bike easier. The test after Brno will be very important for me to get a better feeling with the bike. Now there are at least two races remaining for me in MotoGP and I hope that they will be better than the two before. Brno is a very fast track and I like to go fast, so I hope I can get the team a better result."
Daniel M. Epp, Team Manager:
"The first two races were full of set up work with the bike and Alex didn't have much space for experiments. Brno is a fast and aggressive track, which suits Alex's riding style. I hope that he can demonstrate better what he is capable of doing here."
The race weekend of the Grand Prix Ceske republiky will start on 13th of August with the First Free Practice of the 125ccm class and ends with the MotoGP race on 15th of August.
