Blog | Kevin Orgis pushing to the max one last time in Rookies Cup

Hey all,

The final event was in the Spanish round in Aragón, where the season also started with the pre-season test.

The first session was wet and I didn't get a good feeling but I just tried to improve and not crash.

In the second practice it was dry and I was able to get a better feeling but I wasn't happy with the bike setup.

For qualifying we changed something and it was better and I could improve but I made a mistake in my last lap and many riders overtook me in the list and I had to start from P14.

In the first race I had a good start and I could win some positions but because of battling with other riders we lost the connection to the front group. Also I got really much pain in my knees at half of the race and I couldn't move anymore. So I also lost the connection in my group and I got P13.

Because of the pain I went to the Clinica Mobile to improve for the next race. I also took some painkillers before the race to get less pain.

In the second race I had again a good start and I was fighting in the back of the front group but it happened the same like in race one. Another rider overtook me in the last corner and we both went wide and lost the connection to the front group.

But I tried to catch them and I improved my own lap time a lot but it wasn't fast enough and without the slipstream I had no chance to reach them.

Then I was fighting with another rider and again at half of the race distance I got problems with the knees. But I tried to fight against it and I get a top ten result.

The season was very exciting for me. I had ups and downs but I learnt a lot. I want to say thank you to the whole Red Bull Rookies Cup Team and all the sponsors, who made this possible.

These two years were incredible. This will be my last blog and thank you to everyone, who read my blogs.

See you,
