Blog | Barry Baltus peeling potatoes and practicing for 2019

Hi everyone,

It's been a while. As you probably know, I'll compete for the second time in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup this year and I'm very excited about it ! I'll definitely try to fight for the top positions. Last year I finished 11th overall, which is not too bad but I learned a lot and I intend to put this into practice this season!


This winter, I trained a lot at the gym with my coach. I have a specific program to follow with several training sessions a week and an adapted diet.


Training is the only key to success especially in this competition where the level is very high. I also participated in two Supermoto track days in Belgium. It was cold but it didn't stop me from making good lap times (lead photo).


My family and I recently hosted my annual fan club dinner. As you can see, everyone has got their hands dirty ;-) But it was worth it because more than 400 people came for the event! It was a great success and I thank them for the support they have given me for all these years.


Now I count the days before the first tests of the season in April. I can't wait to be back on my bike and meet the new participants!

See you in Jerez!
