Redding has already started to prepare for the upcoming campaign with pre-season testing aboard his new machine. The transition from a Moto2 bike to a MotoGP mount has been drastic though, and Redding outlines some of the more remarkable aspects of the new motorcycle in the video interview below. The British rider sat down with MotoUSA Contributing Editor, Frank Melling, to talk about racing, his role in promoting new Alpinestars wear and about the upcoming Thundersprint event scheduled for May 10-11, 2014 at Darley Moor Circuit.
Redding will participate in Thundersprint and also plans to use the weekend as an opportunity to meet and mingle with fans.
“The Thundersprint is a giant two-day party for anyone who loves bikes and, best of all, I’ve got the time to talk to fans, have photographs and be with them socially,” explained Redding in mid-December 2013. “In fact, all the things I love doing but can’t at a GP.”
