Viñales: “I must work hard during the winter months”

Viñales: “I must work hard during the winter months”

Isaac Viñales admits he has work to do in the winter break to adapt to the physical demands of riding a Moto2™ bike.

Tech 3’s Moto2™ rookie for 2016 Isaac Viñales made steps forward in his second appearance on the Mistral 610 as he became more accustomed to the intermediate class as well as the Tech3 Racing Team’s self designed and built bike at a two-day private test in Valencia.

The young Spaniard finished the opening day with a best time of 1’37.683 but lowered his lap time by over half a second on day 2, marking some solid progress as he adapted his riding style.

Viñales now confidently looks forward to the next test outing where his preparation for his debut season in the Moto2™ class will continue.

Isaac Viñales: “Overall I am quite satisfied with how the two day test went for me in Valencia and I am excited about what lies ahead with the Tech3 Racing Team. I rode the Mistral 610 for the first time at the Jerez test last week and my first impressions were positive. We continued our work here and we know exactly what we have to do to improve. It’s costing me a bit of time to adapt to the Moto2 class, but I realise that I must work hard during the winter months in order to be in a better physical shape as it’s more demanding in the intermediate class. I’m happy with the work that the team undertook and I am certain that we can have a strong season together. I look forward to working hard over the winter so that I can be ready for 2016.”
