Blog | David Salvador - I fell in love!

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.

Very happy with my new leather outfit, boots, Alpinestars gloves and my Schuberth helmet

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.

Third day, improving every time I go to the track

I had a great days with the Rookies team and I'm eager to get to The first race at Jerez.

Fim Cev Repsol race in Estoril, timed session

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.

FIM CEV Repsol of the Estoril race, we must learn from mistakes

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.
