Blog | Jorge a great double second in Assen | 2014

Hi all,

We just had races 4 and 5 of the Rookies Cup, at the Assen TT circuit. I have to say that it has been great to race again in the “Cathedral”, with plenty of people in the grandstands to see our races, it is a amazing experience. Thanks to the fans for that.

On Friday I struggled a lot as I had many problems, increasing with every session. I was not feeling the front fork properly and the bike was chattering too much and it was almost impossible to handle into the corners and also to open throttle for the exit. So at the end of the qualy I had to do something as I was only 10th, so I pushed as much as I could and I could make the 5th position.

After qualy Alex and the team discovered that something was wrong with the fork, and they managed to solve it, thanks to them!

The races were good, I made two second positions which are very good for the championship. In race 2 I tried to win, but had a problem with a lapped rider and lost contact with Bo. Anyway, I want to congratulate him for his victory, as he did a great race.

Now we are going to the Sachsenring (Germany) for the next two races. This track is one of my favourites, so I will try to make two very good races there,

I also want to tell you that I will race again this weekend in the Spanish championship with the Mahindra team, let’s see what happen there

¡See you soon!
