By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Apr. 29, 2009
The 2009 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup kicks off with a double-header, May 2-3 in Jerez, Spain, with live video coverage of the entire season available over the Internet.

Race fans can watch their favorite future Grand Prix racers such as American teenagers Benny Solis, Jake Gange and Hayden Gillim thanks to a live satellite feed on the Rookies Cup website, http://www.redbullrookiescup.com/.

The recorded race coverage will also remain in the site’s Rookies TV section for later viewing.

The Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup features riders age 13-18 on factory-prepped KTM RC125 motorcycles competing at select MotoGP rounds.

The three American Rookies will try to match the achievements of Washington native JD Beach who won the 2008 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. Beach is currently racing AMA Supersport, riding a Honda CBR600RR, and AMA Pro Flat Track Singles, riding a Honda CRF450.
