Pol Espargaro: “We've got to hit the ground running”

Pol Espargaro: “We've got to hit the ground running”

Monster Yamaha Tech3 rider Pol Espargaro heads to Austin prepared for round two of the 2015 MotoGP™ World Championship.

The anti clockwise 5.5 kilometre long Texan circuit impressively has nearly 41 metres of elevation change on the pit straight and will host its third MotoGP race since its introduction to the calendar in 2013.

Pol Espargaro will be looking to produce another determined performance and clinch a top result in front of the enthusiastic American fans having enjoyed his first visit to the track on the Yamaha YZR-M1 last year, where he finished in 6th position.

Pol Espargaro:
"I am very excited to be heading back to America to race at the Circuit Of The America's which is an incredible track and really good fun to ride. Last year I had quite a good run in the race where I finished in 6th position. However, it's plain to see how much more competitive the MotoGP™ field is this year and the last race in Qatar where everything was so close was the first example of this. We had a few issues there, but we did our best to recover and ended up in 9th. However, this time we've got to hit the ground running so that we can make the most of the available practice time to get a strong setup for the race on Sunday. I am positive and remain convinced that we can have a better weekend this time and challenge to be the leading satellite bike, but it will be no easy task. Still, the crowd is always brilliant in Texas and their support will spur me on."
