Blog | Xavi Artigas thrilled with Race 1, less so Race 2

Hello everyone,

At last the first race of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup arrived at the circuit of Jerez Ángel Nieto, following the test we had in April.

After the 2 free practices I was able to qualify 11th on the grid, it's a position in which if I made a good start I could go forward, but if I had a little bit I would catch the funnel that is made in the first corner and I would have to try to come back.

The first race was very good. I was able to make a good start and finally I finished in the 5th position.

The second race was not so good, I did not make an exit like in the 1st and after being fighting in a big group, finally I could only finish in 15th position .......

Now we just have to think about the next race at the Mugello circuit, a circuit I have never been to and I'm looking forward to ride my KTM on it.

Until then to continue working hard and to prepare myself as best as possible to do the best I can. Thank you very much to all the staff of the Red Bull MooGP Rookies Cup for making this dream come true.

Greetings and see you soon,
