Motorcycle News (UK) - - News -

KTM’S fac­tory Mo­togp team scored their first premier-class points at the Ter­mas de Rio Hondo cir­cuit in Ar­gentina on Sun­day with their RC16, in only the sec­ond race of their de­but sea­son. Pol Es­par­garo fin­ished in 14th place, and team-mate Bradley Smith (main pic) 15th. There may only have been 16 fin­ish­ers from the 23 starters – but hey, that’s rac­ing. Brad­ders said: “To­day was a great day for us as a team be­cause we scored our first points with both riders. I was re­ally pleased with my race. Of course we need to con­tinue to im­prove but right now we have to be happy with what we are do­ing race-by-race.”
