Superbike, surprise raiding: “I dream of a cycling team in 2022”

Ducati opens up to the possibility of riders competing on bicycles without giving up on motorcycles: “I want to race in Europe in three or four years”. He has no doubts when compared with Alex: “He is stronger on the climbs, but I will win at shorter distances”.

Attack on the superbike title first, then space for 2022 that promises to be intense for Scott Redding. For him, however, only BMW will not be the challenge: in fact, the English class of 1993 dreams of becoming more involved in the world of cycling, starting with building his own team.

Redding’s passion for cycling is obvious, but Scott wants to give the sport more space in his routine, as he admitted in an interview motorsport-total: “I want to do more in the coming years to take a step towards professionalism. I am working to build a team for 2022. The team should have six riders and I will be one of them. I I want to race in Europe in three or three. Four years”. But how to combine love for bikes with work? Scott explains: “I talked to my manager about it and he said I could play both games. I can run in World Superbike, it’s my main source of income. I have worked for this all my life. But at the same time, I can compete on the bike when I get home.”

I have a lot of power, but I’m a very skinny opponent in the mountains.” I love climbing. In winter I always train at altitude. But with my weight I have no chance against a lighter opponent. Maybe, on normal routes, I can keep up. Fortunately, most races in the UK do not involve particularly difficult climbs”.

Who knows if there will ever be a chance for a real challenge between the two.
