Blog | Rory Skinner training and talking

Hi Everyone,

I have been quite busy since my last blog.

In January I was at a fitness assessment where I was given a full fitness and nutritional report and I now have a fitness programme set for me so I have been training hard ever since.

In February I was in Spain at the Full Gas Rider Park with Kev Coghlan. We were riding 450 Supermoto on track and on the dirt, it was a fun week, I learned a lot and I hope I can go back there soon.

In March I was invited to the Circuit of Wales media day in London with my dad where I met Sam Lowes and Keith Huewen which was really good as I learned more about the Circuit of Wales development programme, their plans for the 10 year contract to host the British MotoGP and their proposed Rider Academy, the Riders for Health charity and I also met a lot of new people and visited London for the first time.

Last weekend I was at the Scottish bike show where I was invited to go on the stage and talk about the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and my 2015 racing season and also was with Kev Coghlan, John Mcphee and Niall Mackenzie.

Also I have been selected as a rider for Racing Steps Foundation which along with the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup will really help me with my progression towards my goal of one day riding in MotoGP. I will be riding for Racing Steps Foundation in the Spanish National Championship and at the end of the year when I turn 14 I will ride in the final 3 rounds of the Junior World Championship.

I really can't wait to meet everyone at Jerez and to ride the Rookies Cup bikes.

See you soon,

Rory #69
