Jonas Folger will step in for the French based GASGAS Factory Racing Tech3 this weekend, while Pol Espargaro continues his recovery.
As official test rider of Pierer Mobility AG with the KTM and GASGAS brands represented in MotoGP™, Jonas Folger will take over the KTM RC16 from injured Spaniard Pol Espargaro at the Grand Prix of The Americas. With the Circuit of The Americas as the most physically demanding track, no easy task awaits the 29-year-old German rider.

“I am looking forward to racing again, coming to Texas and seeing all the guys from my old team again! I hope we can do a good job even though I know it will be a big challenge for me since my role as a KTM test rider has just started. But it will be a great opportunity to get up to speed and learn more about the bike.”
