Aidan Liebenberg

Hi fellow Rookies and supporters.

I am Aidan Liebenberg from South Africa and I'm 16 years old.

I am really excited about this year and I am looking forward to an enjoyable, but also very challenging year.

Pre-season is really important and I am working really hard to get physically and mentally ready and also fast on the motorbike.

I run, cycle, and gym to get myself in the best possible shape so that I am as fit as I can be, when we arrive at the test in Jerez in April. I also follow a healthy balanced diet.

I have been riding a lot to get myself bike fit, to improve my skills and most importantly, to become faster!

I had my first local National race of the year the past weekend. I was doing great throughout the weekend, constantly in the top group and I qualified 3rd. I unfortunately fell, but that is part of the learning process and we made big improvements this weekend.

I also have some more local National races coming up to get myself ready for the season.

I cannot wait for the test. I'm looking forward to meet all my fellow competitors and the Red Bull Rookies team. I think it is going to be amazing to ride the KTM RC 250 for the first time and I'm looking forward to ride all the new tracks.

See you soon.
