Blog | Ayumu Sasaki - 佐々木歩夢 - Fastest in Jerez and quickly home

Hi All,

I landed in Japan safety on Sunday in the afternoon.

It was great test for me overall and at the first impression of my KTM machine was different from Honda.

The first day, I just concentrated getting used to the machine. The seconds day I tried to more understand this machine and find out better settings and finally I could get good lap times.

The last day of the test, I was pretty good with my machine. In the practice I tried much more, improving my laps times than the second day but unfortunately though I was focusing very hard, I bumped a rider at high speed who slowed down and changed his line. But luckily I didn't get injured and also the other rider was OK.

I really want to say thanks to Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup to make this great test for us.

I can't wait for the first race in Jerez.
