I'm really looking forward to the second round of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in Assen this coming weekend. I was gutted I wasn't able to compete in the first round of Rookies Cup at Jerez in April as I had broken my wrist whilst competing in the FIM CEV Repsol Moto3 Junior World Championship the weekend before.
However since then I have been working hard to get back to full fitness.
In May I was honoured to meet motorsport legend Sir Jackie Stewart when I was invited to join representatives from Sport Scotland, Motor Sports Association, and the Scottish Auto Cycle Union where a new partnership was announced to grow the sport of motor racing in Scotland.
A few weeks ago I went to the Knockhill Racing Circuit 'Rewind Festival' which is a festival of bikes from the 1970s, 80s and 90s, mostly 2-strokes. I really enjoyed the opportunity to get out on track on some classic 2-stokes.
This weekend I have been doing some training, riding supermotos with John McPhee (MotoGP Moto3 rider) which was hard work but a lot of fun.
I can't wait to get back on my Rookies Cup KTM Moto3 at Assen this weekend!
See you soon.
