Sofuoglu more than deserves this victory, but unfortunately this year he was also dealing with a very sad family tragedy. The 2015 season was off to a great start, with Sofuoglu leading the series right after the first few races. Then, just before the weekend at Imola, sad news was announced: his first child, Hamza, was seriously ill. In spite of the situation, Kenan gathered his strength, hit the track and won the race. The Turkish rider then went on to four consecutive successes but tragedy struck again and right before the race in Sepang news of Hamza’s death was announced. With pain and sadness in his heart, Sofuoglu gathered his courage, and with guts and determination he forged ahead, focusing all his attention on the goal of the world title. This victory is a joy that cannot cancel the pain. Of course, the rider dedicated the win to his deceased child. Kenan Sofuoglu’s fourth world title will forever remain in the history of motorcycling and in the memories of those who were involved with this story.
