MotoGP rider Bradley Smith invites you to a training session

Riding motorcycles is actually really easy. If you are familiar with the laws of physics (acceleration, deceleration, inertia and centrifugal forces) you have what it takes to become world champion. In theory.

In real life, we strongly recommend you to rely on lots of practice and professional advice. On 25 July you will once again have the chance to improve your riding skills. That’s when Bradley Smith will hold a Go With Your Pro session on the Red Bull Ring. The action starts at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:00 p.m. Bradley Smith? Isn’t that Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s MotoGP works rider ...? One and the same! That’s why you should secure your place right now!

The training aims at comprehensively improve the participants’ riding performance. It will cover topics such as cornering and where to look, correct braking and accelerating as well as braking into corners. Mastering these basics is essential for becoming a safe rider on the road. And surely, Bradley Smith’s advice will help you win races, too. Knowing where to look, for instance, is a secret recipe for overtaking in corners. You should always look at the corner exit, never at your competition’s back wheel.

This is what makes the Brit tick

The cool Brit is a real work horse. He focusses on training and racing at least 50 weeks per year. “I don't like the thought that I could have achieved more had I only been in a better shape. To remain hungry for victory you got to suffer a little.” Nevertheless, he is also able to relax during his short vacations: “That’s when I don’t do anything else except indulge...”

By the way: Bradley is still a motocross racer at heart who still has two trials bikes, a dirt track bike, a supermoto and an MX motorcycle in his garage. In everyday traffic, he rides a 50 cc scooter – a precaution as it prevents him from “riding faster than 50 km/h”. Smith became famous for his delicate riding skills during the chaotic, rainy San Marino GP in 2015. While all other riders changed their bikes twice, the Brit – 24 years of age at the time – was the only one who continued slicks, securing a fantastic 2nd place.
