RED­DING NEEDS A REST

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Scott Red­ding ad­mit­ted that he’s des­per­ate for some rest fol­low­ing a fran­tic end to the sea­son and two tough tests.

Com­ing al­most di­rect from Mo­togp’s three-week fly­away trip to Asia into the fi­nal round at Va­len­cia fol­lowed by a pair of tests, he ad­mit­ted after two days on track at Jerez, he couldn’t wait for some down-time dur­ing the twom­onth win­ter test­ing ban.

“I want to go home and re­lax. It was a long sea­son, and now that it’s done I can do that. We tried some things on the fi­nal day of the test, but it felt like I hit a wall. I couldn’t hit the lap time, and I ended up just too phys­i­cally tired for it.

“I’m just go­ing to head home and do noth­ing. Eat what I want, sleep on the sofa for a bit. I don’t want to stop train­ing en­tirely, but I don’t want to be train­ing as hard as usual ei­ther. There was a lot of pres­sure at the end of the year, and now my body knows that it’s over it just wants to rest.”
