Blog | Phillip Tonn amazed in Jerez

Hello everyone,

I want to tell you about the first Red Bull Rookies Cup Test in Jerez. It was amazing for me to see all the trucks, the bikes and all the stuff in the box. On Monday we had some briefing.


All riders got the team wear, their Alpinestars leather suits and the Schubert helmets. I can tell you: "It looks really cool".


On Tuesday and Wednesday we had some free practice sessions.


Tuesday was OK for me. But I was surprised how fast and fit all the other riders are. On Wednesday I had two crashes. It was not so fine because I couldn't ride some sessions as the bike had big damage.


All the mechanics works very hard and fast, so it was able to ride some more sessions in the evening.

On Thursday we had some more briefings, photo shooting and filming.


On Friday we went out once again on the track for more sessions. It was a rainy day and it was very important for me to ride in wet conditions.

It was my first time ever on a big bike with rain tyres in wet conditions on a track........ oh my gosh....... i was soooo super nervous.


In end of the day i was happy and like to ride in wet conditions. ;-)

Now I'm back at home.

I want to thank my mechanic and all the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup people for helping me all the time and realising this event.


i will work very hard to step forward each event and cant wait to come back to my bike and first race.

Chat soon,
