Academy riders' double date

Academy riders' double date

The young riders involved in the second Red Bull MotoGP Academy project participated in a double practice session this week, as they draw ever closer to the start of the Spanish National Championship.

The scene of the May 7th season-opener, Albacete, also played host to the two days of practice. English rider Daniel Webb was present after having missed the previous tests through injury, whilst the other riders were resplendent in their new team colours.

The tests passed without incident, although strong gusts of wind caused the temporary suspension of the first days proceedings. The Academy riders have now returned home, where they will continue with their physical programs, before the first race of the season.
