Alex Rins takes a surprise lead in the Moto2™ World Championship, after claiming his first ever Moto2™ podium in Austin.
The Paginas Amarillas HP40 rider followed up his impressive 4th placed finish in Qatar with another brilliant ride, as he secured the final spot on the podium to sit on top of the Championship standings.
"I am very happy with the race. The race was very difficult at the same time very funny. This is my second race in the class and to get a podium is great for me and the team. We must improve our starts though, as even though it’s early in my Moto2™ career, I am making it hard for myself. I learned a lot in this race because I rode with the leaders and I have seen many things. The leadership is fine but I'm still a rookie and there are many more races."
