Rins, Martin, Acosta and Arenas ramp up 2022 preparations

The four Spanish riders were at Almeria as they blew off the winter cobwebs and began focussing on the start of the new season

MotoGP™ stars Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar) and Jorge Martin (Pramac Racing) were joined by Moto3™ World Champions Pedro Acosta (Red Bull KTM Ajo) and Albert Arenas (GasGas Aspar Team) at the Circuito de Almeria on Sunday as the quartet kicked-off their preparations for the new season.

The winter holidays are well and truly over now with both Rins and Martin less than a month away from the first Official Test of 2022 at the Sepang International Circuit. With that crucial two-day test and the equally crucial three-day test a week later at the brand-new Mandalika International Street Circuit looming large, the pair spent a full day lapping the Spanish circuit. Rins arrived fresh from a day of riding at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia just 24 hours prior.

They were joined on track by the 2021 Moto3™ World Champion Pedro Acosta, who’s gearing up for his debut season in the Moto2™ class, and 2020 Moto3™ World Champion Albert Arenas. In an image that we will surely see in MotoGP™ in years to come, Acosta and Martin got a little too close from comfort as they both eyed each other up.
