The first weekend of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup at Jerez de la Frontera were very exiting. I qualified 11th with a good lap time but I was sure that in the race I could battle for the top ten.
In Race 1 on Saturday I made a good start and I was in the battle for the top ten but in the 4th lap I broke the chain and I was forced to stop the race.
In Race 2 on Sunday for the first part I was in the group that battled for the first position, but I wasn't able to stay with the group for all the race, at the end I finished 10th.
I am very happy because I improved myself very strongly in this weekend and I'm sure that I'll be able to battle for the top 5 in the next races.
Now I'll wait the next race of the championship in Assen on the 26th of June.
I'll work hard at the gym, with supermotard, pitbike, mountain bike to be ready for the race!
See you soon, Full Throttle!!!
