Blog | Karel at the front as usual at the Sachsenring


Hey everyone,

Now I am relaxing and also training for the next race, in my country at Brno! I haven't any races before Brno, so it's a little disadvantage for me, but i'll take it like it is. 

When I look back to Sachsenring, I rode very good races, but one was good and the 2nd one was unlucky. 

The weekend started not so good, because in free practice (dry) I couldn't ride fast, because of my tyres. Then in qualification (wet) I rode very good laps and I had very good progress. Unfortunately the 2nd qualification was canceled, so I started from a good 6th position. 

On saturday there were very bad conditions, so we started on wet tyres and from a half of the race the track was dry. I rode in 4th and then 3rd place until the end. I couldn't hold the pace of first two riders, so I mostly rode alone. I didn't do any mistake and stay in a great 3rd place. 

The 2nd race was dry and so we had dry tyres. So it was very good race, because we were a big group, about 12 or more riders. I started very well, because in the first corner I was 2nd! After I took lead and then I mostly rode in 4th or 5th place. 

At the end I tried to beat some riders and I was successful. Onto the last lap I rode like 1st or 2nd and during the last lap I was 3rd or 4th. It's a pity, that the race hadn't one lap less :). 

At the exit of the corner which runs down from the hill someone braked before me and I must too, and at this moment many riders passed me, because down from the hill I was 10th! Finally 9th, so I wasn't very happy after the race, but this is RedBull MotoGP Rookies Cup! Everything can happen. 

I'm very looking forward next race in Brno. There I want to show what I know before my friends and fans. Hopefully will be nice weather and great dry races. 

See you there.
