Blog | Billy Van Eerde settles in on the bike and in the snow

Hi Everyone,

I've just recently finished the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies test in Jerez. It was a great week with a lot of riding. I'm not the happiest about my results, however step by step I am getting more feel for the new bike.

Before the Red Bull Rookies test I raced in Qatar (Round 1) and Thailand (Round 2) with the Asia Talent Cup. In Qatar I managed to get a 7th and a 1st!!. In Thailand I finished up with a 3rd and 2nd. The 2nd race in Thailand was decided by 0.005!!

After the test in Jerez we travelled to Andorra where Dad and I will be staying for the season. The views are amazing. It is still snowing in Andorra and coming from Australia it's pretty cool to be in the snow.

I am really looking forward to the first round and will keep focusing on training hard
to be prepared for the season.

Thank you for reading and will catch you in my next blog.
