Sky Racing Team VR46 have launched their Moto3™ challengers for the 2017 season in Milan, Italy, alongside the debut of the team’s new Moto2™ project. The rider line-up in the lightweight class will remain the same, with Andrea Migno and Nicolo Bulega once again flying the flag for the VR46-supported squad after an impressive 2016 season for both.
With a stunning new livery taking inspiration from those of the early nineties - plus some new partners, including Oakley and Monster Energy - the team wants to go one better than frontrunners in 2017, aiming for the top step. 2015 FIM CEV Repsol Moto3™ Junior World Champion and 2016 Moto3™ rookie Bulega got his first podiums and a first pole position last season, with Migno also making huge progress in Moto3™ to equal his teammate with two podiums and a first pole.
Andrea Migno: "The gym has been like a second home to me in my preparation for this season! It's mental preparation as well as physical."
Nicolo Bulega: "Certainly I was missing a bit of experience, when I was in the first five positions and I didn't collect it. This year we've worked more in the gym and I know the tracks, so I hope to do better."
Pablo Nieto, Team Manager: "With these guys I feel more like a brother to them. You have to get to know all four of our riders - because each is different."
