Blog | Billy battling in the points in Misano

Hey Everyone,

Recently, Round 6 of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup was held in Misano. I really enjoyed my time on the Adriatic coast. Definitely one of the nicest places I've been to with perfect weather and a nice beach!

My weekend was so so for me. Learning the track was a challenge but I enjoyed it and felt quite good.

Qualified P16 after a bit of a difficult session trying to put a lap together.

I knew starting from the rear end of the grid would be difficult but I felt good and was looking forward to the race. The race was a bit crazy with a lot of crashes.

I ended up in fourteenth position after a battle all the way to the line. I wasn't happy with my result but it was ok and picked up a couple of points.

Next round is next weekend in Aragon and it will be a very important weekend for me. I will do my best to get a good result for the last races of the season for the Cup.

Thank you for reading and see you with my next blog?
