Blog | David Salvador a superb win In Valencia 1

David Salvador

Hello everyone!

It has been a really short time between FIM CEV race and Red Bull Rookies race, just one week. As you may all know I had a big crash in the first race of the last weekend. There I suffered a fissure in my tailbone but the doctors gave me the "fit" so I was really happy to take part in the last two FIM CEV Repsol Moto3 races.

After that, I had to go to the doctors again for another checking. They told me that my tailbone was recovering in a good way so they decided to gave me the "fit" condition once more. That was an energy shot for me!


FP's & QP: P3
In the first day of the #EuropeanGP we had really bad weather conditions. I was trying to stay on the bike without making many mistakes, besides it was very dangerous for me to have a crash because the injury was very recent, so I decided to make small steps to get a good feeling. By the end of the day we achieved a great P3 so it gave me wings to face both races of the weekend.


Race 1: P1
First win of the year! I'm very happy and thankful for this amazing victory! It was being a difficult year for me and being able to win even with my bad physical conditions was really great.


Furthermore it was a tough race becasue the track wasn't completelly dry so I decided to push and I got a distance of 15 second between the rider who was second.


I demonstrated a high level riding having an awesome pace during the whole race so that made me feel extremely happy.


Race 2: P7
Highly upset with this race. There was an incident in the first lap that made me lose time.Because of that I had to face a hard comeback. I was the fastest rider on the track. I got the fastest lap of the race but the comeback just arrived until the P4. In the finish straight some riders passed me so I finished in P7.


Even with that I must be cheerful because I was the fastest rider during the race. I know that if there hadn't been any incident in the first lap I would have been fighting for the win, but that's racing mates!

I'm looking forward to get on the bike again in the upcoming race. That will be next weekend at Valencia inside the #ValenciaGP.


Thanks to all the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Team for this amazing weekend!

I hope you enjoy reading me as much as I enjoyed the Rookies races during the last weekend!

Talk to you soon!
