50,000 motorbikes expected at Jerez today

Winner Marc Márquez doing his thing
JEREZ The Guardia Civil Traffic division is launching a campaign that will last until Sunday evening aimed at controlling some fifty thousand visiting bikers turning up for the first round of the European Spanish MotoGP to be held over the weekend at what is called La Catedral of motorbike racing. If you are on the roads in the area (or just about anywhere else in the country) be careful: most bike riders at this time of year think they are Marc Márquez, Jorge Lorenzo or Dani Pedrosa. These three Spanish riders have won all six races so far across the three classes, so there is plenty to get excited about for the home crowd, which could be massive, says BBC Sport/MotoGP, which adds in large type: Their football teams may be having a bad time of it right now, but sport fans in Spain can at least get ready for a celebration this weekend when the first European MotoGP round of the season takes place in Jerez.
