Guadix Selection Event produces nine new Rookies

Nine new Red Bull Rookies will join the grid in 2016 from eight different countries.

From 27 nations across the globe the world’s fastest teenagers spent three days in Guadix at the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Selection Event. Just eight riders could be invited to join the tenth year of Rookies Cup in 2016 and they are drawn from nine countries.

The tenth season of Rookies Cup starts with a three day test at the end of March when those invited from the Selection Event will get to ride their KTM RC 250 R Moto3 bikes for the first time alongside the other 15 Rookies.

While 2015 Rookies Cup Champion Bo Bendsneyder will be starting his first season as a factory Red Bull KTM rider in the Moto3™ class, the next group of teenagers are keen to follow in his footsteps.
