David Alonso dominates on the Spielberg truck

2021 Redbullrookiescup Alonso

Davide Alonso, a 15-years-old Colombian Airohrider, won both Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup races this weekend at Spielberg in Austria.

The two successes are added up to the double podium of the last week, a first and a third place, and project more and more solitary on the top of the championship standings that sees him first with 216 points, 38 more than the compatriot Munoz and 71 on the other Spanish Holgado. As for the future program of the event, the final epilogue only two races are missing, those planned in conjunction with the Aragon Grand Prix next 11 and 12 September, to which David will present himself with a good margin of advantage that will certainly be well managed.

Always on the Redbull Ring, Maria Herrera also took to the track in what was the MotoE race; Maria unfortunately, due to a technical problem, could not go beyond the 17th position. "I was very clear that the race would be run with the dry track but I could not stop the bike for a problem with the rear brake - said the young Spanish rider -. I went wide in the corners, I couldn’t drive comfortably and I couldn’t stop the bike in short, I couldn’t drive as in the past days. It was a real shame!".

In the UK, however, the fifth round of the BSB was staged and precisely it ran on the track of Donington Park. Kyle Smith, riding his Triumph, collected an eighth and a fifth places thus losing the third position in the championship. The season is still very long, in fact there are still six double appointments, and the gap from Bradley Perie, leader of the standings, is only thirty points, a difference that can be largely bridged.
