Smith de­lighted with KTM break­through

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Bradley Smith has been left de­lighted with the progress that he and Red Bull KTM team-mate Pol Es­par­gar— have made over the six days of pre-sea­son test­ing.

Smith is adamant that the hard work is fi­nally start­ing to pay off as they cut the gap to the lead­ers from four sec­onds to 1.4 over the test.

“WE were able to im­prove the lap time pretty quickly on the fi­nal day, do some more work, throw a new tyre at it and man­age a 1m 29s lap, so clearly weõre work­ing in the right di­rec­tion. The more laps we do the more knowl­edge we gain, and weõre start­ing to show we can get there.”
