Blog | Makar Yurchenko training in the dirt, on the tarmac and enjoying the snow

Hello everyone,

A lot of things happened since my last blog. The last 2 months I spent training very hard and preparing for the upcoming season!

In the beginning of February I was training on my supermotard Honda CRF-450, I enjoyed those times a lot, because I was always on the limit of the bike!

After that I went to Valencia for the official tests of Moto3 and Moto2, I had nice time there watching riders' work on the track and in the boxes. Also in Valencia we bought a Yamaha YZF-R6 prepared for training in big circuits.

One of the biggest inspirations for me during past months was the opportunity to watch in Andorra the rally event called "G Series BPA", organized by Dorna. There I met Jorge Martinez Aspar, got acquainted with Nani Roma and Carmelo Ezpeleta and enjoyed the great rally performance in the snow!

During past time I also took part in MotoZK TT Series in Montmelo, on a standard Honda CRF-100. On my second competition with team mate Nikita Kalinin we scored 2nd place! Those races were very funny, but also very good for training!

Between all the events I am always training in the gym with my personal coach Gerar and cycling in the mountains!

During last days I had plenty of training on my Yamaha YZF-R6. These are my first times on a 600 bike, and I am learning and enjoying a lot. And I plan to have more training days on the R6 to be 100% ready for Rookies Cup tests in Jerez!

Also, this year I am going to ride MFR Russian Supermoto Championship. It will have 6 rounds in different tracks and big cities (Moscow, St.Petersburg, Belgorod, Nizniy Novgorod). This championship will help me to stay competitive with other Russian riders and to train hard! And of course I am supposed to take there a victory!

I cannot wait to meet all the Rookies Cup team on the tests in Jerez and to ride very fast my KTM!

By the way, recently my official website was launched at makaryurchenko.com in both languages: Russian and English. Here you may find all the latest news, photos and videos about me. And of course - a special place for my blog is always at redbullrookiescup.com!

Thanks!
