Red Bull Rookies Cup

Lorenzo Baldassarri in thought Red Bull

Hi everyone,

We rode in Sachsenring the 9th and 10th races in this year's Cup. The track is fun and difficult because there are up and down hills.

The free practice was a little difficult but it was helpful. I changed something on the bike and the afternoon there were the qualifying sessions.

The 1st qualifying we rode in the wet, I found the feeling late in the session and I was 8th. The 2nd was cancelled due to track conditions. So I started from the 8th position on the grid.

On Saturday was the 1st race, it was difficult, we started with wet tyres but the track after few laps was dry. I made a good start but when the track was dry I had a bad feeling and I finished 12th.

Sunday we had the 2nd race, It was a little unlucky. I didn't make a good start but lap after lap I felt well, I reached the 1st position and I was fighting with the lead group. When there were few laps to the end, in the first corner I was overtaking but another rider pulled up the bike, hit me and then I crashed.

Now I'm thinking to the 5th round of Spanish Championship in Albacete!

See you,
