The Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 riders had a tough day in qualifying at Mugello. Brad Binder was close to making it to Q2, finally finishing 5th in the first qualy, and tomorrow he’ll start from 19th.

In FP3 Brad managed to reduce his time from Friday and, after completing a total of 15 laps, he finished 20th -1:52.677.

In Q1, the two Red Bull KTM Ajo riders fought for the top 4, but only Jorge Martin made it into Q2 – Brad missed out by just 20 thousandths of a second, leaving him fifth – 1:52.025 – in Q1. Tomorrow he will start on the seventh row of the grid, in 19th position.

The sixth race of 2019 for the Moto2 category will start at 12:20 pm local time, with the riders set to cover a total of 21 laps.

“It’s was a tough day for us and overall it’s been hard all weekend. In qualifying we managed to take a step forward but we haven’t got the result we hoped for. We still have a lot of room for improvement and luckily we have tomorrow’s warm up to find the positive points we need. It’s tricky, but the important thing is the race, so we’ll work hard to be as well prepared as possible. The team and I are going to give it everything we’ve got.”
