Tech3 Yamaha Ready For Misano Challenge

Posted:

The meandering 4.2 kilometre Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli is the next round for the Monster Yamaha Tech3 team mates Bradley Smith and Pol Espargaro who will both intend to power to glory as the leading satellite bikes under the Italian sun.

Having endured a challenging and wet Silverstone weekend, the two riders head to the GP of San Marino full of optimism and ready for the fight at the 13th event of the 2015 MotoGP World Championship. The circuit, which features six left and ten right corners, has held some highly exciting battles in the past and will offer the perfect conditions for another entertaining spectacle this weekend with the track having been resurfaced earlier in the year.

Bradley Smith will be seeking to extend his impressive run by following up his hard fought 7th place result at his home Grand Prix with another competitive showing at Misano in order to stretch his record of completing every race no lower than 8th this season.

The 24 year old British rider is currently leading the satellite MotoGP standings and will intend to consolidate his points tally by meeting the chequered flag inside the top six.

‰ÛÏNext up for the MotoGP paddock is Misano, which is a GP that I always really enjoy riding at and I am certain that we can conclude the weekend positively on Sunday." Smith said. "It was a bit of a tough race at Silverstone, but I gave my absolute all for my home fans and overall the finish was not too bad, plus the experience certainly has raised my confidence with riding in the wet.

"In the past, I have scored a few podiums at Misano in the 125cc class so I have some happy memories and these will spur me on to get a good result. Plus, I am only five points from Dovizioso in the championship standings, which makes me even more determined to push hard. The track has recently been resurfaced which is positive, yet we will start with a slight disadvantage as Ducati and a few other teams tested there recently.

"However, we will take everything step by step in order to clinch a solid grid position on Saturday after working on the best possible setup for Sunday as I want to be able to do a top job.‰Û
