Bendsneyder: “For now things are going well”

Bendsneyder: “For now things are going well”

Dutch rookie Bo Bendsneyder continues to build to his World Championship debut in Qatar in just a few weeks.

Fresh off a two-day private test in Valencia, Bo Bendsneyder and the Red Bull KTM Ajo team headed to Jerez for two more days of testing. Weather on Sunday, with winds gusting to 70km/h, meant the test was reduced to just a single day. With conditions still far from ideal, Bendsneyder was unable to set a fast lap but worked on improving his feeling with the rear of the bike on Monday the 15th of February. The rookie completed a solid 56 laps during the lone day of action, gaining yet more experience on his 2016 steed.

Bo Bendsneyder: “Today we started a little late, because it was cold early in the day and the track was a bit wet. Yesterday it rained and today the surface was a little slippery, even though the wind helped to dry the track. In general, this has been a positive test, in which I've set good times and maintained a consistent pace, so I'm happy. We still have room for improvement with the rear, and from now on we will focus on working on this issue. We weren’t able to get a really good hot lap in because the track is not in perfect condition, but for now things are going well and I'm very happy with how the test has gone."
