2015 Superprestigio with Steve English
One of the best things about the Superprestigio event – folks who might otherwise never come face to face find themselves lined up in a friendly event. Moto and Moto2 star Alex Rins meets Jared Mees.
Friendly event or no, one fellow wants to win this event more than anyone else.
A short track race is a bit hectic in Turn 1 on the first lap. Alex Marquez leads the pack.
In the main event, the Supreprestigio Superfinal of Superness, Baker grabbed a lead and held on to it easily.
He graciously made it look like a race and Marquez finished close behind.
Rins won Best of the Rest with a 4th place and hearty hand clasp from Baker. Really well done for Rins.
Marquez is 2-0 against Mees and 0-2 against Baker. Last year Baker dislocated his shoulder in practice and had to skip the racing.
A gracious podium!
A solid victory on foreign soil. Baker and Mees continue to be good ambassadors in Spain. Just imagine if they rode more short track at home instead of the half- and mile tracks…
