Furusato wins on Rookies Cup debut in Mugello

Japanese 15-year-old Taiyo Furusato only rode a KTM for the first time on Friday, had never seen Mugello before and yet took an incredible debut Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup victory. After winning the first 4 Asia Talent Cup races of the season he had added a sensational Rookies Cup debut win. “I’m so so happy, as you say, first race, first victory, first time at Mugello and on the KTM, all first, but I could win the race.”. He laughs, “Of course I will win the race, or I want to win the race, that’s all.”. “The race was very very good because yesterday was difficult for me. Then I tried lap by lap to fight back, tried to get positions each lap. Finally, on the last lap, I got to second and tried to win the race but I touched the green, that’s the race.
