Blog | Billy van Eerde ready to go racing

Hey guys,

It's only 2 weeks until round 1 of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in Jerez and I can't wait!! After unfortunately missing the test due to injury I'm looking forward to it more than ever!!

It was great to see the mechanics and amazing staff again as I visited the test even though I couldn't ride. Always make you feel right at home and help you with anything you need. It hurt to watch the other riders riding and me watching but I still learnt some things watching trackside.


I went to the doctor's last Tuesday and got the all clear to race in Valencia for the FIM CEV Repsol Junior World Championship this weekend. I haven't raced since Aragon last year so I'm a bit nervous but ready for the weekend!! I really like the look of Valencia so I can't wait to get on track.


A few days ago I rode with the Ohvale at a little karting track (Main photo). My injury felt good and enjoyed it a lot
Lately I've been training hard trying to improve my fitness more and more. Cycling isn't my favourite training but I am trying to enjoy it and liking it a little more the more I do. I have also been doing some running and gym to keep my strength up.


Now I am packing and getting ready for the next race. I can't wait for Jerez and hope to get a good result in Valencia this weekend.

Thank you for reading,
