Blog | Gabin Planques with a good ride just outside the points in Mugello

Hi Everyone,

I'm coming back from my second race of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup at Mugello. The track was so nice and I was really happy to ride this fantastic circuit.

In FP1 I had to take my marks on the circuit and start making the first adjustments on the bike since it was my first time on this circuit and I finished this free practice 16th.

In FP2 I did one lap because I crashed with a mate and I can not ride again before the end of this free practice.

QP was difficult because I did not do many laps during the two free practice sessions following my crash. But I rode a good lap time but every lap I went onto the green areas on the outside of the corners so my good laps were cancelled and I only finished 23rd on the grid for the race on Saturday.

In the race I had a very good start and I found myself in a group of three riders I had a good feeling with the bike but two laps from the end a rider in our group made a mistake then we finished the last laps and I crossed the line 16th.

Now, to focus on the third race of Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup at Assen.

Full gas!
