Blog | Bo Bendsneyder taking the fifth at the Sachsenring and a 'Happy Smile' on Monday

Hi Everyone,

My first Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup race weekend at the amazing track of the Sachsenring Germany was a great experience! With a win on Saturday and a DNF, after a great battle, on Sunday it was also a weekend of extremes.

The race on Saturday was maybe the best race that I ever had on the Red Bull Rookies KTM, from lap one till the end it was a great battle, and again I was the first one who saw the checkered flag!

And the first one who wins 5 on a row, Is very special!

Race two was also a great race and together with Fabio we were going for the highest podium only my race ended on the last lap, last corner in the gravel!

For sure I was disappointed and afterwards you can say if I had done this or if I had......but I had all the confidence for the podium and didn't push it to hard!

We are still in a learning process and this is one of them too.

But 'Congrats!' to Fabio he's been the whole season a great opponent and the championship is now all open!

Straight After the Sachsenring I went to Emmen in the north of Holland where I had a great Day as an Ambassador of Happy Smile, this organisation gives kids who are ill a great Day somewhere on track! This time I drove with this kids on a duo kart and they are having the time of their life!

Of course I was after my crash very disappointed..... but when you having a day with these kids who cares about that crash!

See you all on track after the summer break!
