In the AGR Team, we’re really excited about the start of the campaign with the FIM CEV Repsol, hoping to grow during the season and, why not, even defend the title we won in 2016. During the 8 races on the calendar, 7 for Moto 2 riders, we’ll enjoy the debuts of three new riders with different goals, but all hoping to shine in their first experience as AGR racers.
Edgar Pons returns to the European championship, after his time in the Motorcycle World Championship, hoping to win again like he did in 2015. A fast rider who is competitive in both dry and wet conditions. For his part, Benny Solis is making his debut in Moto2 following a noteworthy career in the United States. A very fast racer whose first tests in the category have caught the eye, although he has the usual adjustment process ahead of him.
And the third rider is Jose Julián García “Josito”. He will take part in Moto3, a category in which he has plenty of experience, despite his youth. In his first year on the team, he will try to become a regular in the Top10. The action begins in Estoril, the only event outside Spain, and our riders will be looking to do their very best in their debut in Portuguese soil.
