Blog | Flo wins race 1 of 2012





Hello Guys,

Now we are in "sunny" Jerez.

The free practice on Friday was wet and I could go faster and faster, but at the end I was only in 8th position.

The first Qualifying was wet and dry, so it was not so easy to go fast.

After three laps I rode into a right hand corner and before I wanted to give gas, my rear slid away and I crashed. It was not such a big crash and my mechanics Frank and Victor fixed my bike before the second qualifying started.

So thank you for this guys. 

The second qualifying started not so bad, but at the end I was only 8th, because I had not so much time to make a good suspension setting.

Saturday it rained a lot, but three hours before the race starts it stoped raining.

My start was not so good.

I was only 6th after one lap.

Lap by lap I could go faster and pass a few riders.

Than I got 1st position and fought to hang on to it.

At the beginning of the last lap I knew, that the 2nd wanted to pass me and he did it.

At the last corner I wanted to catch him back and I did it!

I am very happy to win the first Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup race of 2012.

Sunday I want to do the same.

See you,

Flo #66
