MartÌ_n, Mir and Pagliani Favorites As Red Bull Rookies Cup Kicks Off

Posted:

The 2014 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup kicks off this coming weekend at the Spanish Grand Prix in Jerez with two chances for the 24 rapid teenagers to show their capabilities.

Favourite will doubtless be last year's Jerez Race 1 winner Jorge MartÌ_n as the 16-year-old Spaniard also dominated this year's preseason test at Motorland Aragon.

The Rookies Cup is notoriously unpredictable though. While the young man from San Sebastian de los Reyes, near Madrid, who finished second in last year's Cup to current Moto3 factory rider Karel Hanika, is looking good, there are a chasing host who are bound to give him a hard time all the way through his third Cup season.

Most obviously fellow countryman Joan Mir is very strong going into his second season in the Cup as the 16-year-old from Palma de Mallorca was second fastest in testing even though that was a pleasant surprise to him.

‰ÛÏI did not expect to be so far forward in the times, a second position is a magnificent result.‰Û
