BRADL “TEACHER” AND “COWBOY” AHEAD THE AUSTIN GP

Austin, 10 April: this weekend the MotoGP contingent heads to the USA for the second round of the 2014 season at the spectacular Circuit of the Americas outside Austin in Texas. Before taking the track, LCR racer Stefan Bradl, alongside his Boss Lucio Cecchinello and Brian Harden (Data Recording Engineer) met a group of students at the University of Texas (one of the most renowned University in the States) taking part to an Engineering Lecture which deeply impressed the US students fascinated by the technical aspects of the MotoGP field.

Stefan: ”I am really looking forward to the Austin race week end. It’s a fantastic race track and I like the atmosphere in the US. Last year it was a great week end for me, finishing fifth, and after our short but impressive performance at Qatar, the expectations are high, and also the will to be up in the front pack again. Three weeks break was too much for me and when you lead a race for almost nine laps and you suddenly crash, you just want to be back racing as soon as possible. This year again we met the students at the University in Austin and it was a great experience because those young students were very interested in the MotoGP. And today I had fun challenging the US riders like Nicky and Colin in a special competition: cattle roping and horseshoes. Of course they were better trained but I won a trophy anyway”.
