Blog | Artem Maraev had a fight to get to Spielberg

Hi Everyone,

The season started with a big question. How to get to Spielberg? The Russian borders are closed and entering the Europe was a real challenge. No direct flights were possible but finally we found the way to fly to Istanbul, Turkey and then to Austria. The preseason test went well and I felt a lot of confidence before season starts.

The first two races are the thing to forget and focus on the next one. I lost the Qualification with my fault and started races back in the field. In Race 1 I was knocked out by other rider when he crashed and his bike took me out. I the second race I lost the start, it took a couple laps to pass back and the front guys pulled away.

So that's happened and right now I'm full focused on next races.

The time between the races was great, we were enjoying Austrian mountains with riding bikes every day. Went to Gym, recovered well and now I am full ready for second weekend in Austria.

Chat soon,
