No jitters ahead of Jerez test
It’s well known around the motorcycle racing world that Kyle is someone who isn’t fazed by pressure! Riding for the most prestigious team on the grid, alongside the current and 5 times World Supersport champion would be a daunting task for some but Kyle has fully embraced this new challenge and is looking forward to getting on the bike and learning from some of the best people in the sport.
Jerez is a track that Kyle is familiar with and he will be hoping that Kyle can quickly settle into his new team after Kenan Sofuoglu and the Puccetti Racing team did so much to help Kyle set up the Kawasaki for his old team. It’s hoped this close working relationship and knowledge of the Kawasaki will help Kyle get off to a flying start.
Take a look at Kyle testing at Jerez in the video below.
We spoke to Kyle ahead of the upcoming test and he was understandably upbeat ahead of his trip to Spain.
I’VE BEEN REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO JEREZ FOR WEEKS NOW. I’VE BEEN WORKING AND TRAINING REALLY HARD SO THAT’S MADE THE WAIT GO A LOT QUICKER THAN EXPECTED BUT I’M VERY EXCITED TO BE TESTING FOR 2 DAYS IN SPAIN.
HOPEFULLY WE’LL GET SOME GOOD WORK DONE AT JEREZ THEN I JUST NEED TO GET MY HEAD IN TO GEAR READY FOR AUSTRALIA!
Another new sponsor for 2017
Not only has Kyle got a new Sponsor in Langver, he’s also teamed up with the guys at RST who are now supplying his Leathers and Gloves for the coming season. We have to say a big thank you to RST for really going the extra mile and getting a new suit sent over in time for the Jerez test. It looks magnificent and the quality is exceptional. If you would like to own RST Gloves and a suit like Kyle, please go to the RST website and take a look at their excellent range.
A big thank you to Shark
Kyle has been lucky enough to of been sponsored by Shark helmets for the last few years and they’ve really been incredible, that sponsorship will continue in 2017 and we couldn’t be happier to be involved with such a highly thought of helmet manufacturer.
Shark have once again stepped up and rushed new helmets to us for the test down in Spain, we’ve just got one lacquered in time to be ready and it looks great with the new Langver Logos added to the visor and the sides. We couldn’t be happier with Sharks helmets and would appreciate it if you would consider Shark helmets when you need a new one.
