John “really excited” to be back to Austin
With their minds set on repeating the good results from Qatar, the SAXOPRINT RTG team and their riders set off to the Wild West.
The second race of the season will be held at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.
The 5.5 km long track is very entertaining and features a steep climb on which the riders have to overcome a height difference of 40 meters. In total the circuit contains 20 corners and will be raced in a clockwise direction.
After the great result by both riders at the last race, the team and the riders are optimistic going into the weekend and the declared goal is to be racing at the top yet again and bring home points.
After the first race I’m feeling really excited to get to Austin. I didn’t set the best time here last year, but I’m looking to change that especially as I’m feeling good with the new Honda! I like the track and that’s always a help.
