Rory Skinner Riding a Moto3 and appearing on stage

Hi Everybody,

A few weeks ago I had the chance to ride a KTM RC250R Moto3 for the first time. I took part in the Race of the Year event which was held at Mallory Park in England. The weather was very wet so setting a fast time was hard but I managed to set some fast laps and qualify on pole.

In Race 1 I crashed out of the lead while braking hard through standing water into the tight hairpin. In Race 2 I finished 2nd overall and 1st in class. I really enjoyed racing the Moto3 for the first time and I really can’t wait for the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup to begin!!!

Last weekend I was at Motorcycle Live – the UK’s largest motorcycle show. I was invited to go on the main stage where I was interviewed about being selected to join the 2015 Rookies Cup. I had a great weekend and met some amazing people.

I have also been doing cross country mountain bike training which is improving my fitness for next season.

See you,
