David Salvador

Hello again to everyone!

I have already finished the Red Bull Rookies Cup test and I'm very happy about how it developed.
Day 1: we were picking our clothes up, like so our helmet, suit and gloves.

We also met our new mates, mechanics and Red Bull Rookies Cup staff. I knew my new bike as well and I had a photoshoot.

First contact with my motorbike. I fell in love!

Day 2: We test the bike for the very first time and I had a good feeling with her and I enjoyed a lot. I worked with the bike to feel as comfortable as possible and also with the set-up for the race.

Day 3: It was the second day with the bike. I worked hard focused on my worse aspects and putting emphasis in what I can do to improve. As well I focused on my pace as well as on the time attack.

The same weekend I had my first FIM CEV Repsol race at Estoril. It was a tough race because of the weather condition. It was a very crazy QP but I felt comfortable in both dry and wet conditions. Finally in the QP1 I got the P10 and later in the QP2 I got the P14, with the P14 for Sunday's grid.

The race was declares in wet condition and when I overtook some riders during the first lap of the race I committed a mistake and I had a crash, so I had to quit the race. I have to learn about this and I'm ready for the next race on April's 28th at Valencia (Circuit Ricardo Tormo).

Thanks for reading me.
