Blog | Adrián Carrasco enjoyed the first weekend of the season

Hello guys and girls,

After the first race of the championship I have very good feelings for Mugello. This first race in Jerez has helped me to adapt again to the KTM of the Red Bull Moto GP Rookies Cup.

In the first free practice I tried to get the bike ready for the qualy but I could not fit it to me.

In the qualy it looked as though we would get much more bad weather than the free practice but I tried to push the maximum to get myself in a good position on the grid. I could not make a really good position, I was 13th and would have to come back in the race.

In the first race I did not make a good start but I tried to stay in the second group and to maintain myself throughout the race in good position, fighting with my teammates all the way to the end, I was able to make 8th position.

In the second race I made better start than in the first race and tried to push to be in the top group but in the end it was not possible because I had some suspension problems. I was fighting like in the first race until the end with my teammates, in the Last lap two guys passed me and I tried to overtake one of them in the last corner but, unfortunately, the front wheel closed and I fell. The positive is that I was able to take the bike and pass through the finish line.

Now it's time to focus on Mugello and prepare for the race very well.

I wait for you in Mugello, ciao,
