Blog | Clément Rougé fighting in the top group in Austria

Hello everyone,

It's my Spielberg Blog.

For the Thursday, the track walk, a crucial moment to start well on Friday.

For the Friday in FP1 was good, to identify the trajectories and its markers, I immediately liked the track of Spielberg.

FP2 was very good because I drove alone and I made 9th place.

For the Qualifying Practice I tried the same strategy, but it was difficult to make a good time so I decided to take a wheel to get into the top 10.

I matched my goal and was 9th, unfortunately my time is canceled because I went on the green, exceeding track limits. So I finished in 15th.

For Race 1 a crash with another rider makes me lose my chances to fight in the front positions.

Race 2 is better, I'm in the 1st place group. I finished 13th at just one second from the top and so close to the win. I had a good pace because the bike was perfect.

We will try for the podium at Misano.

Thanks to the Red Bull Rookies Cup Team!
