Blog | Max Cook's best ever race in Assen

Hi everyone,


I had my best weekend ever at Assen for Round 3 of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup with a 4th position fighting for the lead!

Going into the weekend I felt really good because I've ridden Assen a few times before and I love it.


I had a personal best qualifying of 7th position.

Unfortunately in Race 1 my bike stopped 4 laps in because of an electrical fault but Nico and my helper James did a great job to replace everything for Race 2 on Sunday.

Race 2 was the best I've ever ridden. At the start I got stuck behind a few riders which meant the leading group pulled away by about 2 seconds. I pushed harder than I ever have done to catch back up.

I even got the fastest lap of the race! I was battling at the sharp end throughout the race and really wanted to get a podium but on the last lap there was no room for me to overtake.

I'm so happy with how the weekend went.
