GROWING THE ORANGE: KTM AND RACING TALENT

The unusual career of an Orange Kiwi: Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Crew Chief Paul Trevathan

Crazy as it might sound, the last MotoGP™ weekend before the summer break, which is at Assen, was actually a home race for New Zealander Paul Trevathan (52). In fact, Miguel Oliveira’s crew chief has lived on the other side of the world to his country of birth for many years, and now calls the Dutch town of Druten home. We interviewed him to find out more about how he ended up here and what he likes to get up to when he’s not on the circuit or at the airport.



WHAT IT REALLY FEELS LIKE TO GAS A WINNING MOTOGP BIKE

Impossible lean angles and cutting-edge technology help towards one of the biggest rushes on two wheels but what’s it really like to throttle a MotoGP™ bike (and equal the highest ever speed in Grand Prix…)? We asked the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team for some insight…



WRAPPING MIGUEL: KTM’S MOTOGP™ STAR TALKS RACING GEAR

2021 is Miguel Oliveira’s third season in MotoGP; all with the RC16. He now has four trophies in the premier class after backing up a maiden podium of the 2021 season in Mugello, Italy with a brilliant victory in Barcelona, Spain the following weekend. The Red Bull KTM Factory Racing rider is the most experienced KTM athlete in the class and has tasted the soaring highs and the painful lows in just a few short seasons. What gear has the Portuguese counted on in that time? Using a moment in between practice sessions we decided to ask…



5 (MOTOGP) THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE KNOWN ABOUT: RED BULL KTM FACTORY RACING

KTM mark five years on the MotoGP™ grid in 2021, so to welcome the half-decade and the upcoming new season we dug up some trivia about the two Red Bull KTM Factory Racing riders, both products of KTM’s GP Academy system.



Brad Binder: “It’s the best training tool I’ve ever had”

This summer KTM injected fresh speed into the KTM 450 SMR and warmed the throttle for a new generation to discover the rasping thrill of supermoto, but for the Red Bull KTM MotoGP™ stars the KTM 450 SMR has always been essential. We asked three Grand Prix athletes to explain how and why a different pair of slicks carries such appeal…



MotoGP™ SPEED: “IT DOESN’T SCARE YOU…BUT IT DOES MAKE YOU WONDER”

As 2020 MotoGP reaches the Red Bull Ring for the second time this season, Miguel Oliveira talks about existence at 340kmph plus



GROOMING A NEW HORSE

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing gets a new MotoGP™ rider for 2021 and the team composition starts again. We asked Crew Chief Paul Trevathan about the challenge of molding the next Grand Prix star.



THE ART OF BRAKING IN MOTOGP™ AND HOW TO MASTER IT

Getting to the finish line first is what MotoGP™ is all about, but to make that happen, you need to be able to scrub off speed efficiently. We take a closer look at how braking force supplier extraordinaire Brembo successfully control the negative acceleration forces for all four Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MotoGP™ riders.



Interview of the Month: The Rookie – What’s it like in MotoGP™? Miguel Oliveira talks first tastes

The irony of course is that the 24-year-old is far from a ‘rookie’. Miguel Oliveira is the first athlete to have progressed through Red Bull KTM’s newly established Grand Prix ladder: having represented the factory in Moto3 (6 wins) and Moto2 (6 victories and 21 podiums). The fresh link with the Tech3 MotoGP squad for 2019 opened up the perfect ‘learning’ opportunity for Portugal’s sole racer in the category, and he impressed with his hard work, intelligence, application and speed in the first rounds that his tenure with KTM was impressive enough and quickly confirmed again for 2020.
