[kropotkin thinks...] - Michael Laverty Explains The Key To Brno

If you enjoyed reading this article, please click here to view it on Kropotkin's site, MotoGP Matters.


The rolling hills of Brno have produced one of the most iconic circuits on the MotoGP and WorldSBK calendar, and this 5km circuit has been the home of some classic races. What goes into a fast lap, though, is a lot of work on your bike settings and not forcing the issue. Max Biaggi and Marco Melandri, two former 250GP champions, have been hugely successful at the Czech track and it's no coincidence that both riders were schooled riding bikes that needed high corner speed.

Former MotoGP rider Michael Laverty is in Brno, and he sat down to talk about what goes into finding speed at the track and what he's seen from watching trackside on Friday.

"I really enjoy Brno but it's a track that you can't attack," said Laverty. "This is a track where you need to let it come to you and your settings are crucial. You can't force the bike around here because it needs to turn naturally for you. That's the reason that Max Biaggi was the king here for so long because he let the bike do the work. Max didn't brake late into the corners and he didn't force the bike to turn in the mid-corner and on the exit he wasn't sliding once he got on the gas. He was just smooth and relaxed and that's the key."
