    KTM’s home track, the Red Bull Ring in Styria, Austria, recently played host to an incredible double-header for rounds 10 and 11 of the 2021 MotoGP™ Championship. The second of those race weekends saw one of the craziest races in recent memory take place, as the rain began to fall in the closing stages and flag-to-flag tactics came into play.

    Crazy as it might sound, the last MotoGP™ weekend before the summer break, which is at Assen, was actually a home race for New Zealander Paul Trevathan (52). In fact, Miguel Oliveira’s crew chief has lived on the other side of the world to his country of birth for many years, and now calls the Dutch town of Druten home. We interviewed him to find out more about how he ended up here and what he likes to get up to when he’s not on the circuit or at the airport.
