The Gran Premio Michelin de la Republica Argentina provided swift momentum and a small landmark for Red Bull KTM Factory Racing. On Sunday Brad rode to 17th position.
Termas de Rio Hondo dawned wet and dark for the second Grand Prix of the year and after giving MotoGP teams and riders their first taste of mixed conditions through Saturday’s busy event agenda of qualifying and the Tissot Sprint. Brad’s aggressive and brilliant win on Saturday afternoon was typically battling while also full of promise at the same time.
Sadly though Brad was not able to replicate his first lap prowess from Saturday and his tumble on the first lap after contact with another rider meant a long ride to 17th.
“I was quite excited to have a wet race; it’s been quite a while since we had one. I felt pretty good. Unfortunately at the end of the back straight I had a bit of a connection with someone and the back-end spun around on me. I picked up and restarted and then just tried to ride. If there had been a red flag or some other incident then I would have had another chance. Anyway, we finished the race: it was really tough and super-long! Overall, it was a good weekend with the win yesterday, I’m looking forward to starting again in America.”
