Interview with Aleix Aulestia, an adventurer in the British Superbikes Support Series

Two weeks ago, as I told you in the Six places where I would like to see more motorcycles (I and II), I got hooked on the British Superbikes. It is not that I stopped following him because I always stay abreast of the results, but it was the first day of the year that I had 100% free to enjoy the British. It was after the first race in the Superbike category that Eurosport UK rolled the blanket over its head by broadcasting the Triumph Triple Challenge, one of the championships in the support series.

Of all the pilots I was especially struck by a certain Aleix aulestia, which Jack Burnicle and James Witham seemed to know from before. Aleix is a 22-year-old pilot –and ADE student– from Sant Cugat, Barcelona, who this season decided to pack his bags and emigrate to the islands to carve out an alternative future after having gone through Motocross, Supermotard and even the CEV. With him, and thanks to Pere, his father, we were able to talk a few days ago so that he could tell us what it is like to be competing so far from home, the differences he has found and, ultimately, what that little world is like.

Introduction to the Triumph Triple Challenge

Motorpasión Moto: First Aleix, tell us how are you?

"Flying from here to Brands Hatch is just as expensive as getting off with a van to Jerez"

MM: How do you make it up to compete there living in Sant Cugat?

"The BSB drivers there are like the World Cup players here"

MM: And how was the atmosphere there? For three years I have been listening to the commentators speak of 50,000 and 60,000 people at events such as Brands Hatch or Cadwell Park. Sometimes I don't know if I believe it …

MM: You are having a remarkable season, but what is or was the goal?

"Almost all teams have their sponsors, bigger or smaller… the BSB is more alive."

MM: It seems that things work there …

We want to once again thank Pere, Aleix himself and all his sponsors, ITR, Shoei and Fortis. We hope that everything goes well in the next tests and that we can see him later in other categories of the British national championship.
