Blog | Nick Kalinin doing plenty of racing before Assen

Nick Kalinin

Hello everyone,

I want to tell you how I spent my time between rounds of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup.

After the end of the first stage of our Cup, I began preparing for the first round of the Ukrainian Supermoto championship. But as my bike was not ready, I had to borrow a bike from a friend of mine.

The races were not easy. In the first race I finished third, and in the second one I finished second.

A week later, my father and I went to the Spanish Road Racing championship , which was held in Jerez.

My team put a new engine on the KTM Moto3, so on the first day I was riding slowly.
On the second day there were two qualification sessions that I did very badly. And at the end of the day it was the first race. I started from 14th position and climbed up to 10th.

On the second day there was a warm-up, and then the second race. In the second race I was 14th position at the start and fought up to 8th.

So I do not spend too much time thinking back, rather look forward to the next Rookies Cup outing in Assen.

Best wishes,


Who's in this
