MCN: ‘Redding relishing battle with Hayden’

Moto2™ championship runner-up Scott Redding is thoroughly excited about his MotoGP™ debut in 2014, not least as the Englishman will be racing the all-new Honda RCV1000R machine that will also be used by 2006 World Champion Nicky Hayden.

Whereas Hayden will ride the motorcycle formerly dubbed the ‘Honda Production Racer’ for Power Electronics Aspar, Redding will step up to the premier class with the same machinery while racing for GO&FUN Honda Gresini.

"When I heard Nicky was going to be riding the (RCV1000R) I was really happy," Redding explained to Britain’s Motorcycle News.

"I want to be the best non-factory rider next year and I am not a person who wants to win anything without any competition. I like to work and fight for it…it will be interesting to see how (Hayden) does and I am looking forward to fighting with him; and it is not going to be impossible to beat him."
