The Spanish company takes part in competition with the Avintia Racing Team.
The motorcycle brake systems company, located in Gavá (Barcelona), is taking part in the MotoGP World Championship as a technical sponsor of the Avintia Racing team, with riders such as the japanese Hiroshi Aoyama in MotoGP class, o the Spanish Toni Elías in Moto2 class, amongst some other riders.
The company wants to join this way the highest competition again, after being sure that the products they are designing and making deserve to be fit in MotoGP class, where only the bests can find their place.
J.Juan has been collaborating with Avintia Racing for more tan a decade, since the years of BQR Team. In 2013 it is coming back to the fight offering them some parts with the highest quality for the prototypes BQR-FTR of Barberá and Aoyama, both of them riding in the CRT class, in MotoGP. Both Kalex Moto2 of Elías (2010 Moto2 class World Champion) and Smith are fitted with the best parts to allow them to be fighting in a very hard class, with a lot of similarity between all riders during the whole season.
