Smith and Espargaro Geared Up For Valencia Finale
Monster Yamaha Tech3 Team riders Bradley Smith and Pol Espargaro will arrive at the Ricardo Tormo circuit prepared and ready for the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana where they aim to close the year with two strong results.

After a demanding triple flyaway header, the MotoGP paddock returns to Spain for what promises to be a thrilling end to the 2015 racing season with the 4 kilometre circuit being an incredible stage for the action.

The track, which features eight left as well as five right corners, is situated in an amphitheatre that allows the roaring crowd to view every section of the circuit where many memorable battles have been fought in previous years.

Bradley Smith heads to Spain fully primed for the fight as he targets another top six result in order to confirm his status as the leading satellite rider of 2015 as well as 6th in the World Championship standings.

"Next up is the season finale and I can‰Ûªt wait to get going at Valencia where I fully intend to close this incredible year with a good result. My main objective is to complete the 30 lap sprint inside the top six so that I can clinch 6th in the championship standings and finish as the leading satellite rider.

The young Briton comes off the back of a superbly executed 4th place finish in Malaysia and as he has positive memories of a previous victory at the Valencia circuit, he confidently seeks to close the year on a high.

"This will be super for me and the Tech3 Team and a testament to how hard we‰Ûªve all worked in 2015. I‰Ûªve had some strong performances at Valencia, which includes winning my last 125cc race, plus after achieving three decent results in the fly away GP‰Ûªs, I am fully confident of doing a good job this weekend. The event is bound to be a memorable one and we definitely need to hit the ground running on Friday.

"The layout of the track doesn't provide too many chances to overtake, so a solid qualifying performance will be crucial in order to be in a promising position for Sunday. Having said that, the weather there is always unpredictable and so we need to be ready for any circumstance.

"As far as I know the event is sold out and the grandstands will be packed, which will be great to see, therefore I am really looking forward to the last challenge of the year.‰Û
