Three-time world champion Dani Pedrosa will finally get to give KTM’s RC16 the beans at a two-day test in Brno. The Spaniard fractured his collarbone in a crash while testing the KTM earlier this year and has been off the track since.
Pedrosa did take a few laps at a two-day private test at Mugello last month but that was just to check his fitness levels. Now, he will be returning to the track in full force.
The test in Brno is likely to take place on 5th-6th June. Pedrosa won’t be the only test rider astride the KTMs. He will be joined by Team Suzuki Ecstar test rider Sylvain Guintoli who is preparing for his first wildcard appearance of the season at the Catalan GP.
Team Red Bull KTM has had quite a year so far with his riders as well as race machines doing pretty great. However, there is still a lot of improvement to be made and that is exactly why KTM is looking forward to this test to gain as much information as possible from both the riders’ inputs.
