Blog | Bartholomé Perrin struggling with injury in Valencia 1

Hi everyone,

This first weekend in Valencia is now over.

FP1 did not start in the best way because on the second lap I crashed due to the cold tyres...
I picked up the bike as quickly as possible and left again despite the damage caused, step by step I regained confidence and finally managed to finish the 14th fastest time in the last lap just 1 second from the 3rd position!

So the weekend started well but unfortunately during the FP2 I commit a big high side which cost me a scaphoid fracture...

From there it was not easy for me because the pain was very strong, not wanting to give up I took the decision to ride!

I gave my maximum during the 2 races by completing 7 laps in the first one and 12 in the second one, the pain was really strong and doing more laps was dangerous, at the end of the race i no longer felt my hand.

Doctors have told me I need of 2 months for my hand to repair itself, but I'm still up for the challenge again this weekend while riding.

It's hard to think it's already the last weekend of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup season...

See you this weekend to try again and give my best ;)
