Lead riders Bradley Smith and Pol Espargaro spearheaded the test with KTM test rider Mika Kallio backing them up, however the new rider on the bike was from KTM’s Moto2 line up as Miguel Oliveira had his first taste of what a 260+bhp KTM RC16 MotoGP prototype bike feels like. Oliveira is currently third in the Moto2 World Championship with #redbull KTM Ajo following three podiums already this year from nine races, plus an additional podium after the adjusted Catalan GP results.
Over two days the team had 16 hours of track time in 35 degree heat with a track temperature of 44 celcius. The only hiccup was Espargaro having a spill on Friday afternoon on the exit of the ‘bus stop’ when on new tyres. He was fine with minimal damage to the bike.
