2017 has started and I can't wait till my first ride on the KTM this year. The upcoming year will be a very important one. It's my third year in Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and I would really like to show good results there.
The year started very well when I signed with Freudenberg Racing Team. I'm happy I will ride with Freudenberg Racing Team and especially riding with a KTM.
Beside of the news that I'm going to ride for Freudenberg Racing Team I will also be some weeks in Germany to be supported by Fast Track Racing Center, part of the company To Limit.
Here I will train and practice a lot. Several weeks ago I have to come to Lohne where there will be a lot of tests and practices mentally and physically.
In December I came there for the first time and we did a lot of sports, tests and assignments. They will do also some research mentally like concentration and how to handle the pressure and resistance. It goes quite far but I hope it will help to have good results in racing.
This weekend we have a motorcycle show in Assen and next week I go to Spain to train on the Supermotard.
Hopefully it will be a bit warmer than in Holland. So busy weeks in the beginning of this year but I like it.
