Because it is too cold outside to train with the motorcycle, I train all weekend on indoor
race tracks with the minibike so I keep moving and keep the feeling with the bike.
In February I participated with Robert Schotman at an Endurance race of two hours on a minibike. I also train a lot in the gym to get stronger in my arms, the progress has been pretty good so far. I train them, because the Red Bull MotoGP KTM is much heavier than a Honda NSF100.
This week I have holidays and from Thursday till Sunday I'm on a motor show in Utrecht where every day I'll have an interview on the state of the TT Circuit.
I hope it will be nice weather soon so we can train again on the TT Junior Track in Assen.
From March 25th I will train in Spain (Cartagena) and from there we go to Jerez where the
spring training of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup will begin.
Last week I was invited, together with Robert and Bo, to Eurosport Benelux at the Olympic stadium in Amsterdam for a press conference, because Eurosport Benelux will broadcast all MotoGP races including the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. During the press conference I received three helmets from Shoei Europe for this season painted by MotoPaints in Assen. (See photo)
