Blog | Barry Baltus super fast at Assen - satisfied and disappointed at the same time

Hi everybody,

Summer and school holidays have officially started but I have not had time to relax so far ;-)

Last week, I was in Assen for what I call my "homerace" even if it's not in Belgium. It's the closest circuit for me and my fans. I spend some time with them during the weekend and it was a nice moment.


As for the race, I am satisfied and disappointed at the same time. The lack of speed penalized me but I gave everything. In the first race, I had a lot of fun and the fight was intense. But in the last corner before the finish, I lose the front... I was sad but I showed my determination.


During the second round, I led many laps until the last corner but I finished 3rd and happy to climb on the podium again, especially in front of my friends, family and fans.


Now I'm already in Germany for the next round this weekend in Sachsenring.


Yesterday we made the recognition of the circuit and last settings of the bike. Now I'm ready for qualifying !


See you there,
