Mattia Casadei Jerez

Blog | Mattia Casadei hurt in Jerez but winning in Vallelunga

Hi everyone!

At the first round of the Red Bull Rookies Cup the free practice went quite well. I was near the first riders but a stupid crash in the first race spoiled the weekend.

I was happy because the feeling with the bike and the circuit was good. In the crash of Race 1 I injured my little finger and lost the nail. I couldn't grip the throttle and it was difficult to brake because in hurt so much!

In the Race 2 I lost the feeling with the bike and the finger was very bad, I tried to do the best I could do, finishing 11th.

Bad weekend but well remake in Assen!

The first 2 races of the Italian championship with sic58 Squadracorse was run in Vallelunga. I started the first race in 3rd position and in very bad wet conditions I finished 5th with 2 crashes. In the second race I did a great start and I was first for the whole race and I won!

Very happy for me and my team!

Were going to Assen with a positive mood and good motivation.

See you soon,

Mattia Casadei
