ALEX DEBON


Born in the Uxò Valley, this young fan of the Enduro, Trial, and Mountain Bike debuted in professional competitions in 1994 as the wildcard in the 1998 and 1999 Spanish GP. During the same period, he finished 6th and 7th in the European Championship. His best season came in 2001 when he conquered 2nd place in the starting grid of the Valencian Community GP even though rain later vanquished any chance he had of winning the race. Debon left Team Aspar after two seasons to ride Team Hardwick's Honda 250 but sponsor problems prompted him to move to Team Campetella and an Aprilia Privata in 2002. He performed consistently and finished 11th overall, a result he repeated the following year atop a Honda. In 2003, he placed in the point zone multiple times and his best finish was the 5th place he earned in Australia. With team BQR in 2004, he started off the season well with a 6th place finish in South Africa and 5th place in Jerez. His performance, however, slowed down and he didn't record any finish better than 8th. He closed out the year in 12th place and his team signed him on for another season. In 2006, he was called upon by Aprilia to test ride new motorcycles. Alex participated in five races in 2006 and five in 2007, in the last of which he climbed atop the first podium of his career thanks to a 3rd place finish. In 2008, Debon substitutes the current world champion, Lorenzo, atop an official Aprilia.

ALVARO BAUTISTA

Alvaro rides with natural talent, speed, aggression, and confidence. In the paddock, he is a bright-eyed kid who is always happy and available. After the exalting finish of the 2006 season (where he won the international 125 title), Alvaro decided to move into the 250 atop an official Aprilia RSW with Jorge Martinez’s team.

This is the best bike I could possibly have – said the Spanish rider – it rides much differently than the 125cc. It is more powerful and difficult to enter into curves. I will need a bit of time to adjust, but I will give it my all in hopes of doing well from the start and making the most of 2007”.

Born in Tavalera de la Reina, he was the surprise of the 2004 International 125cc Championships. His first contact with the world of motorcycling came when he was only three. At nine, he took part in his first minimoto competition. He was the Madrid minimoto champion in 1995 and 1996, he moved to the Coppa Aprilia in 1998 and conquered 3rd place behind Jorge Lorenzo and Joan Olive. After two seasons in the Coppa Movistar (with an injury suffered in the middle), he confirmed himself to be in the running for the CEV title before being chosen for Clarence Seedorf’s Aprilia team. He climbed atop the podium for the first time in 2004 thanks to the 2nd place he earned at Donington Park. In the same season, he finished 3rd twice; in Qatar and in Malaysia. His 2005 season, however, was not as stellar. The move to Honda wasn't easy and he didn’t bring home the expected results; flirting with the podium just once with a 4th place finish in Assen. 2006 marked his return to Aprilia with Martinez “Aspar’s” team. This time the results came quickly as he won the first race in Jerez and didn’t slow down after that. He ended up winning the international title in Australia with three races remaining in the season. He collected a total of eight victories, four 2nd places, two 3rd places, and two 4th place finishes. With the title also came the move to the 250 where he wasn't content with just the Rookie of the Year title. He instead won at Mugello and rode his new RSA 250 to victory in Portugal while climbing onto the podium another five times.

This season Alvaro Bautista is an official Aprilia Racing rider with team Master MVA Aspar.

HECTOR BARBERA


As often happens, Hector Barbera inherited his passion for motorcycling from his father. Since he was little, Hector nurtured his dream of becoming a protagonist of the two wheels. Today, Barbera is one of the top riders in the 250 with a clean, composed riding style. He doesn’t lack aggression, as demonstrated in 2004 when he battled for the conquest of the 125 world championship atop an Aprilia of Seedorf Team. That season, the 17-year-old Hector Barbera logged in phenomenal comebacks and races where he was always in the fight for victory. The 2005 season marked his debut in the 250. Hector did his best to gain experience as he looked forward to the 2006 season where he would be a protagonist. Determination and character are not in short supply and Hector is particularly well-adapted to the Aprilia 250.
“Last season was characterized by various ups and downs. My arm fracture kept me from being in position to battle it out for the world title – commented Barbera – but 2007 will be completely different. My technical leader, Rossano Brazzi, doesn’t need performances since his experience allows him to do a great job of preparing my motorcycling (that is already fantastic thanks to him).”
The 2007 season awaits important results to add to the already rich resume of this young Spanish rider. Hector began winning in 1995 and 1996, obtaining the Valencian Motocross Championship title. Always atop a 2-wheeler, Barbera participated in the Junior Spanish Motocross Championship in 1997 and 1998, finishing respectively in 3rd and 2nd place. In 1999, he changed terrain from dust to asphalt in the National Airtel Formula Championship and closed out the season in 4th place. The same year, he also took part in the Spanish Velocity Championship (CEV) and finished in the top ten, in 7th. Another year full of satisfaction was 2000. Hector won the National Airtel Formula Championship and continued to improve in the CEV where he rounded out the year in 4th place. Since then, it has been a steady stream of success. In 2001, he won the Bancaja Champions Formula. In 2002, he debuted in the worlds (in 14th place), and won the Spanish 125 Velocity Championships. In 2003, he was already an undisputed protagonist of the 125 motomondiale. He won two races (at Donington and Motegi) and finished out the season in 3rd place. 2004 was even better. Atop an Aprilia 125, he dominated four races (Mugello, Rio, Estoril, and Valencia), helped Aprilia win the international 125 title, and closed out the season just missing the international title with a 2nd place finish.
Hector Barbera is an official Aprilia Racing rider who will race for Aprilia Team Toth.

MATTIA PASINI

Raised in the world of motorcycling (his father, Luca, boasts of multiple Italian velocity titles and other important results), Mattia was already on the track at 11 years-old in the Italian Minimoto Championship where he saw much success. In 1996 he won the title, beating out riders like Dovizioso, Poggiali, and De Angelis. He moved onto “real” motorcycles in 2003 when he placed 3rd in the European 125 Championship. In 2004, he was chosen by Lucio Cecchinello to be the teammate of veteran Roberto Locatelli. He finished almost all of races and earned points on ten occasions, closing out the season in 15th place. In 2005, he remained with Aprilia as part of team Totti Top Sport, becoming one of the season's protagonists. He won two races (in China and Barcelona) and climbed atop the podium six times. He ended the season in 4th place. In 2006, he raced for Team Aspar, once again earning six podiums and two victories (in Mugello and Germany, where he conquered Aprilia's 200th victory in international velocity races). Just like 2005, he finished 4th in the riders' classification. 2007 was destined to be a title year with a new Aprilia RSA but Mattia was plagued by an impressive series of unfortunate withdrawals. However, he still managed to win four races in Great Britain, Holland, Misano (Aprilia's 100th victory in the 125), and Japan. He also climbed atop the podium at Brno and closed out the season in 5th place. In 2008, Mattia passed to the 250 atop an official Aprilia.

THOMAS LUTHI

A 20-year-old Swiss, Thomas rides with great talent and intelligence. This season, the 125 World Champion is making the jump to the 250 and he and his team chose to do it with an official Aprilia RSW.
“I am surprised by the power and velocity of the RSW – declared the Swiss rider – it is completely different than any motorcycle I have ever had. There are many differences between it and the 125, especially since my previous bike was not an Aprilia. The sensations are completely new to me. Since I'm adapting my riding style fairly quickly to the new cylinder, I’m sure I won’t have a bad 2007.”
After starting out in the minimoto, Thomas discovered speed. At age 14, he disputed the ADAC Junior Cup before moving to the IDM Championship in 2002. He was called up by the Czech Elite Racing team to substitute Smrz at the start of the Sachsenring trials. He placed in the top ten on various occasions before his season was ended by a fall that took him out of the running. The next year, he disputed his first full season in the Motomondiale, gathering points in 9 of the 16 races and finishing 2nd in Barcelona after giving Dani Pedrosa a run for his money. In 2004, his expected break out year didn't unfold and he finished Worlds in 25th place. 2005 was instead a memorable year. After a fierce battle with Kallio and Talmasci, the Swiss rider won the International 125 Championship title in Valencia. He had four victories, three 2nd places, and one 3rd place. In 2006, his victory at Le Mans circuit was the only pearl in a not-so-exciting season. 2007 was marked by his move to the 4-liter where Thomas demonstrated to be one of the fastest and most combatitive riders in the category even though he didn't conquer a single podium.
Today, Thomas Luthi is an official Aprilia Racing rider on Team Emmi Caffè Latte.
