Blog | Barry Baltus ready to discover the Red Bull Ring

Hi everybody,

I hope you all are having a good holiday!

For me, the last race in Red Bull Rookies Cup at the Sachsenring was a bit complicated. I was not very happy with my two 11th places. However, after analysing the race, I realised that I had the best lap time in the third lap, my times were still good even though I did not ride well. I continue to learn from my mistakes, it's part of the job!

Then I went to Aragon for the Moto3 Junior World Championship. I achieved pole position on Saturday, which was incredible. It's the first time I've done the pole in this category and I was very proud. I would especially like to thank all my relatives and sponsors who have always believed in me.

On the other hand, Sunday's race was difficult. After a good warm-up, my team changed my engine due to a lack of power. The start went well, I tried to stay in the leading group but on the 3rd lap, the gearbox blocked and I could not avoid the fall. The next race will be the good one!

Once back home, I continued to train physically with my coach Eric Lambert. I train with him 3 times a week. We went cycling, running, swimming and many other things.

I also train to improve my riding position, which is very important.

As you can see, these are not relaxing holidays for me but now I'm perfectly ready for Austria. It will be the first time that I will ride on the Red Bull Ring. I can't wait !

See you there!
