Blog | Marcos Uriarte pushing hard in Valencia 1

Hi everyone!!

I'm going to tell you how I did in the first race weekend in Valencia's circuit.

FP1 was in wet and, from the first lap, I had much confidence, but I made a mistake and fell.

In FP2 we had wet conditions with a little bit of lane, what made the track very slippery and I had a few shocks but even after that I had much confidence, I felt so good with the bike, the bike had been working really well and rode quickly.

In QP, in dry conditions, it was a little harder and I could only manage 11st place but we drew conclusions to improve in the race.

In the first race we had difficult conditions because the track had humid areas, so it was easy to fall, but I made up positions to the 2nd place.

The problem was that a mechanical failure left me out of the race.

In the second race I made a good start, but an incident in the second turn of the first lap cost me early in the race and I had to catch up. The positive side was that I had a very good pace and rode fast, but I was only able to reach the second group and achieve 8th position.

I would like to say thank you for all the work done by Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Team and to my helper for the work we have been doing these months.

Greetings to all.
