Bo Bendsneyder Misano winner

Blog | Bo Bendsneyder went for it in Misano

Hi everyone,

Still can't believe it that I'm the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Champion 2015!

Going to Misano was completely different to all the races before, and sure I was more nervous than usual but after the first practice I was determined to go all the way in Misano for the title!

Going out in first practice with a bad setting but still I managed to get in front. That gave me a lot of confidence. After FP2 and Qualifying I saw that Fabio was a bit behind and he had to start from the 3rd row, but Fabio is a great Rider and I knew he would be soon on my tail!

And I was right....after a couple of laps in the race, Fabio was there and we had a great battle. For sure it would be no battle like Sachsenring Race 2 or Brno Race 1 because this was my race and nobody else's!

We fought for every inch and than again I saw on the big screen that Fabio was off track and I knew I had become the New Champion!....but for a moment I was a bit confused and the guys behind me were closing in....but at the end I pushed again and there was the gap again and finished for the 8th time this year on the highest step of the podium!

Still 2 races to go and my goal is to win them all but Fabio and Oscar will think the same....and there are some great new riders like Ayumu and Raul who will also be there, and even if we are competitors... we are also friends and having a lot of respect for each other.

Next year those guys will be fighting for the Championship and that is the power of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup!

The next day I went home and got a big and warm welcome on the airport, it was great to see all those people.

I want to thank all my sponsors, friends, fans and family but most of all ...my parents who always believed in me and giving me the opportunity to race. Without them I wouldn't be Here!

See u all in Aragon!

Groetjes Bo #64
