Bendsneyder Secures Unique Podium Finish in Texas: ‘This One’s for Grandpa’
Podium Finish for Bendsneyder
The Motor Speedway Circuit in Texas made history on Sunday as NTS RW Racing GP rider Bo Bendsneyder secured his first Moto2 career podium. The Dutch rider finished third in the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas, which makes him the first Dutch rider to finish on the podium in the intermediate category since 1980.
The Perfect Race
Bendsneyder’s impressive performance was witnessed by his family, who came all the way from the Netherlands to support him. However, Bendsneyder had extra motivation to race well on American soil – his grandfather, who passed away recently, was from Texas, and the young rider dedicated his podium finish to him.
Bendsneyder had a perfect start, as he moved up from 10th to fifth by the end of lap one. He steadily increased his pace and moved up to third position, where he maintained his position until the end of the 18-lap race. The podium finish reinforced Bendsneyder’s confidence, which has been growing steadily since the start of the season.
