In the hours before the start of the Catalan Grand Prix, the Repsol Honda team riders surprised the locals and the occasional tourist when strolling through the streets of Barcelona and visiting some sights. But was it them or were they lookalikes?
The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya hosts the seventh round of the MotoGP World Championship this weekend and, once again, tens of thousands of people will head to the track to watch their idols.
Before the Grand Prix, things were the other way around. Marc Márquez and Dani Pedrosa went into central Barcelona to mingle with people in the metro system, go shopping in the market and have a drink on a terrace, getting closer to their fans. Was it really them? MotoGP fever has taken hold of the city, and the Repsol Honda team riders have done their bit to get the excitement going.
