Blog | Aleix Viu wins his last Rookies Cup race

Hello friends,

The weekend of September 24th was the last test of the Red Bull Rookies Cup this year and also for me. Motorland is a very fast track and its layout fits my type of riding. The weekend I dedicated to finding the best possible setting on my motorcycle.

It was a weekend in which the work has been profitable, in all aspects; so much so, that even though FP1 was on a wet track I placed my KTM in second position in the table.

Finally I was able to prove that a wet track does not cause me any problem to be competitive, as I already predicted in the circuit of Brno. For the QP I qualified in third position for the grid; I did not want to take many risks to get a better position because in Motorland it is not very important.

Saturday was the penultimate race, the championship was in play, it was really me who was in a tough position to get it, although mathematically it was possible.

From the beginning I tried to dominate the race in a continuum of overtaking that went all the way. I knew that in the long straight they would overtake me on the last lap, but I could not do anything but fight for a podium position.

I finally went through the finish line in third place. The championship was awarded to Masaki, from here I give you my congratulations.

Only left to fight for the runner-up.

Sunday's race only had one option for me: to win it. I wanted to say goodbye in the best way possible.

From the first lap I tried to dominate with authority. And I got it. My most direct rivals were falling to the ground trying to follow my race pace.

I managed to finish more than two seconds ahead of the second. I climbed again to the top of the podium and managed to revalidate again, vice-champion of the Red Bull Rookies Cup.

For me it has been so gratifying to be twice runner-up of this cup, as for others to have won.

I hope you enjoyed watching me in every race. I have enjoyed A LOT aboard my KTM trying to make great overtaking, amazing braking and huge smiles.

Within a month, the Gala MotoGP will be celebrated. There I will take the opportunity to write my last Blog in this "family" that has captivated me so much. See you soon...

A hug, my friends.
