Blog | Scott Ogden racing aplenty and ready for Aragon

Hi everyone,

I hope you're all good.

Since Austria I have had 2 weekends racing in the Moto3 Junior World Championship. First was Jerez, which was the weekend immediately after Austria.

I learnt many things on the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup bike and tried to move that way of riding onto the Moto3 Honda. This worked really well and I achieved my best qualifying in 12th place. This was a really big step for me as qualifying was something I struggled a lot with at the first few rounds.

We had 3 races across the weekend which I knew would be hard in the heat of Spain. Unfortunately the first race didn't go to plan with a small crash early on. However race 2 and 3 I achieved two good points scoring finishes with a 11th and 10th place result in the 2 races respectively.

After Jerez I travelled back to the UK where, after the two weeks of self isolation, I began training hard for the end of the season. With 6 weeks of racing in 7 weekends I knew I had to be stronger and fitter than ever.

The next race on the calendar was JWC Aragon which took place over the weekend just gone. For me it was a tough weekend. With a lot of changing conditions I didn't get learn the track as fast as I would have liked.

Qualifying was wet. It was a difficult session of me as I had never ridden the Moto3 in the wet. I tried to improve each lap, however towards the end I had a small crash resulting in dropping far down the time sheets. This put me 21st on the grid.

The races were tough. It was dry however very windy conditions. In the first race the wind caught me out with a couple laps to go while in a good points scoring position. This set me back for the next race but I finished the race and got some more laps under my belt. In the final race of the weekend I had a good battle moving from 25th at one point to finish 13th.

The improvements over the weekend gives me a lot of belief going into the next Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup race at Aragon in 10days time. I now stay in Spain where I will train hard and make sure I am in a good physical state going into the last part of the season.

Thank you,
