Blog | Alex Escrig thrilled with his first ride on the KTM RC 250 R

Hi mates,

I write you again to tell you how was this week the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup test in Jerez.

Monday was un exciting day but so long, at last i can get on my bike although I had to wait to the next day to ride it. Also I wore my new Alpinestars leathers. That was spectacular as was the new Schuberth helmet, that was amazing to. We did some pictures and we filmed videos and finally the day was complete.


On Tuesday and Wednesday we rode the motorbikes, a bike that I never rode before. The first practices were a little bit difficult because I had to understand the bike, as the day passed we could find a great set-up. So it was that I finally with a great feeling.


The second day didn't find me so comfortable because I had a problem changing the set-up of the bike and I didn't end so happy but we decided to return back to the beginning and go again step by step.

On Thursday we were filming and making some briefings and then we could also help our helpers with the bikes.


On Friday it rained and we put on the wet tyres and we went out. I started step by step, little by little and I felt so good in wet conditions with the bike. I improved in respect to the other days on the riding of the bike and I think that if it was dry conditions I would get a better time compared with the first days because I felt really better.


I want to say really thanks for the help that I received from the Rookies Cup team and for that experience, thanks to the people that surrounded me because I had a great time.

I will keep working and I will keep pushing for the race week, thanks for reading this.
