Blog | Karel Estoril double podium


Hey everyone,

In Estoril we had 3rd and 4th races of Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. My Friday trainings were very good and finally I started from 2nd position! It was really very good result for me. In the first race on Saturday I had very good start, and in the 1st lap I was 1st. Then we had very big and strong group and nice fighting with other guys.

I tried to be in front for the full race and onto the final lap I was 3rd. I held my 3rd place and also tried to pass riders before me, but finally I stayed 3rd, my first podium! After unlucky Jerez a very very good result. 

On Sunday I made a good start again and I was in front. We had a battle of 5 or 6 riders and I enjoyed each lap in this group. 4 laps before the end of the race I had contact with Alt. I stayed on my bike but I lost some seconds to the leader and also I fell back to 5th place. Then I rode the best lap of the weekend and onto the final lap I was 2nd. In the final lap I lost my place and I was 3rd. 

It was so good weekend for me and I'm looking forward to Silverstone. I've never been on this track so it'll be big challenge for me. 

Thanks to everybody in Rookies Cup paddock. 

See u in Silverstone!!!
