“IT WAS A PRETTY AVERAGE DAY. IT STARTED OFF REALLY WELL, WE’D BEEN WORKING HARD IN THE 5 WEEK BREAK AND I FELT SUPER CONFIDENT COMING INTO THE WEEKEND. IN PRACTICE I FELT COMFORTABLE WITH THE BIKE AND LAID DOWN SOME GOOD LAPS AND CLAIMED SUPERPOLE AGAIN WHICH WAS A MASSIVE POSITIVE. I USED THAT MOMENTUM TO ROLL INTO THE FIRST RACE BUT MY BACK WHEEL GAVE WAY AND I COULDN’T FINISH THE RACE. THAT LEAD INTO THE SECOND RACE WHERE I RODE WITHOUT CONFIDENCE AND FINISHED 7TH. WE’VE GOT 4 ROUNDS LEFT AND I’LL NEED TO MAKE THE MOST OF THEM AND SHOW WE CAN DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. UNFORTUNATELY WE HAD SOME LET DOWNS THIS WEEKEND BUT WE ALSO PROVED WE ARE BACK TO WHERE WE SHOULD BE RIDING.”
