Blog | Robert gets back into action after recovering from injury

Hello everybody,

First I want to wish you all a happy 2015.

In the beginning of December I sustained an injury on my right foot. I was doing motocross with my trainer and former motorcycle racer Joey Litjens when I crashed and someone rode over my foot.

Because of that I was not able to walk for two weeks but now my foot is as good as it was before.

I'm busy with the preparations for the upcoming season. I'm training a lot in the gym and in the weekends I'm racing on my minibike. Last Sunday I was competing in a 2-hours race together with fellow Red Bull Rookie Walid Soppe on the minibikes. At the beginning of the race we had some bad luck where we lost 2 laps to the guys in the front of the pack.

During the race we managed to close the gap with quick and constant lap times. At the end we managed to finish third, only 8 seconds behind the winner.

This year I'm also going to compete in the KTM RC 390 Cup. This is a championship in the Netherlands and Belgium where we're riding on KTM 390 bikes. By competing in this class I can spend more time racing and training so I can improve more during this year in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup.

I am really looking forward to get back on the bike and to the pre season test.

All the best,

Robert Schotman
