Moto2: Elena Rosell to replace Julian Simon at Assen

Super team owner Jorge ‘Aspar’ Martinez looks like his decided to play Pygmalion/Henry Higgins in fielding replacement riders while Julian Simon is recovering from his fractured tibia and fibula sustained during the Catalunya GP.
After choosing CEV Moto2 rider Jordi Torres for the British GP, who unfortunately DNF’d in the very wet race, Martinez has decided to give another rider a chance to debut internationally and this time has chosen a female racer, Elena Rosell for the upcoming Assen GP.

25-year-old Rosell currently races in Extreme Stock series of the CEV championship and fourth in the standings, will be the first woman to compete in a GP race since Katja Poensgen took part in the now defunct 250cc championship eight years ago.
