3 January 2019 Ana Carrasco with Provec and Kawasaki in 2019

The Kawasaki rider from Murcia will defend her world title in 2019 with a new structure created just for Ana.

The executives of Provec, the brothers Guim Roda and Biel Roda plus Alvar Garriga, along with the racing support staff of Kawasaki Motors Europe, have developed a programme made to measure for the Spanish rider for the WorldSSP300 Championship. The aim is to keep making history with the 2018 World Champion and offer the best support and technical structure possible.
 
In a category that is becoming more and more competitive, 2019 will be more difficult than 2018, but the intention of the project is to have Ana fighting for the podium in every race.
 
Ana Carrasco: “In first place, I am very pleased to continue being a Kawasaki rider and to carry on astride the Ninja 400, I’d like to sincerely thank all the work performed by the DS Junior Team in 2018, with which we were champions. In spite of all the Public Relations activities of these last months after becoming world champion, my priority has always been to find the best technical resources in order to face the 2019 season, I’ll be wearing the No. 1 and that means that the pressure will be extremely high, we’ll see if we are capable of being at the highest level again.”
 
Guim Roda: “Last year’s result was spectacular, and after the tenacity and determination of Ana, we were left with no choice but to set up a project tailored for Ana and help her be a world reference and an example for all women who follow the goal of “yes I can”. We found ourselves morally obligated to set up this project, and there’s a very high responsibility weighing down on us to repeat last year’s results and we are going to build up a team of people around Ana that will help us achieve that objective.
 
To start off, she’s coming to live in Barcelona as of January 8, where she will start a personal training programme in the Car of Sant Cugat, She’ll also combine together with the physical training, dirt-track, flat track and motocross tests in Rocco’s Camp, Montmeló and continue her second year law studies at UCAM.
 
The idea is to launch Ana into her next orbit and professionalise further where needed the achievement of last year; let’s see how far we can go.”
