After Rome, Barcelona is the city in Europe with the largest quantity of motorcycle owners. The relatively small city contains over 300,000 motorbikes. It is, perhaps, for this reason that the Gran Premi de Catalunya de MotoGP is so popular. It may also explain why an impressive selection of its competitors are Catalan.
