Jorge Navarro, road to Moto2 title
On March 8, the motorcycle World Championship begins at the Losail circuit; being usual, the Qatar Grand Prix will kick off the 2020 season. In the Moto2 category, among the candidates for the title is the rider of La Pobla de Vallbona (Spain), Jorge Navarro.
The Spanish rider presents his credentials in this 2020 after a 2019 where he got 8 podiums (4 times second in Spain, France, United Kingdom and Aragon; 4 times third in the US, Catalonia, Austria and Valencia), as well as achieved 4 Pole Positions (Spain, France, Australia and Valencia) and 2 fastest laps in the race (France and Aragon). Adding a total of 226 points and finishing 4th in the general classification of the Moto2 World Championship:
The year 2020 is very hopeful after a 2019 fighting for the World Championship; I think we have to be a favorite to the title, I have worked very well the preseason and it will be important to start well in Qatar to follow the road of last year.
Jorge Navarro will complete his fourth season on Moto2 this season and will continue with the Speed Up team for another year:
Speed Up will be my team for the second consecutive season, we are improving several details at the motorcycle and riding level with the aim of fighting to win the World Championship. This has to be our main challenge.
Before the first race in Qatar, Moto2 riders have done several pre-season tests and where Navarro has felt very comfortable at all times:
We have been in Jerez a few days ago and the truth is that it has gone very well, we have worked on the race configuration and settings of the motorcycle, the tests have been super positive and we have obtained interesting information. Now we will get into career mode, eager to start the season.
Navarro considers himself a professional rider 24 hours a day, taking care of his physical form inside and outside the circuits:
As an athlete, it is clear that taking care of my body is essential, after each training it is important to hydrate correctly and RAW is a key drink for me because it rehydrates me in a completely healthy way. I really appreciate being able to hydrate with an isotonic 100% organic and without sugar.
The Spanish rider has just turned 24 years old and only thinks about the first race of the year:
Wednesday I will travel to Qatar, on February 28 and 29 we will take the last preseason test. It is a track that I like but that owes me one, in which I have never achieved a great result. Last year I was involved in a crash and in 2020 I hope to charge what I owe.
To win the Moto2 World Championship, you have to be clear about two keys: be constant throughout the year and take advantage of your moments of strength. When you feel strong you must win and, if you do not, at the end of the season you pay in the general classification. When the day comes that you have the weapons to win, you must do it.”
Good luck Jorge!
