SBK, Scott Redding: 5 kg less for the Ducati V4 and two tenths faster

During the forced break, the British rider didn't just sit back and relax. His weight made him perform better on the Ducati.


A week ago, Scott Redding played the leading role during the Misano tests, to the point of becoming the reference on the Riviera track. The Ducati rider broke all records, coming in just one tenth from Aleix Espargarò's Aprilia MotoGP.

Not a bad performance for the British rider, who promoted all the innovations brought to the track by the team. In short, they did everything in Borgo Panigale to meet the needs of the rider who, in turn, has worked hard on his body during these past months.

He himself admitted it: “I've been training the past few months,  and I lost five kilos," he said. "This helped me to be two tenths faster on the bike. Personally, I'm satisfied because, physically, I've had excellent results."

We're now waiting for him on July 8th and 9th for the two-day test in Barcelona.
