Blog | Jordan racing up front

 

Hi All,

2 Words to describe Silverstone: Dog Fight!! 

Race 1 – From 12th on the grid I got up to 5th when the rain came down and all the front runners ended up hitting the tar. Back to pits to change to wet tyres for the re start. I had a broken foot-peg and only half a clutch lever but no time to change them so I did the best I could and finished 18th – OK under the circumstances.

Race 2 was the race of my life. I have never ever been in such close contact with so many riders around me in my racing career. Somehow I worked my way through the pack and managed to get into the lead for a while but just couldn’t hold onto it. It's all about slip-streaming and who is the bravest on the brakes. 

I have really learnt a lot from Red Bull. The rider coaches have been helping me with my lines but I think a lot of my pace, both in Red Bull and BSB is because I am slip-streaming and tucking in much better. Thanks to Alex and his good advice. The bike was fantastic thanks again to Juan my mechanic and the guys from WP Suspension have done a great job. I feel so much more confident these days.

Red Bull Rookies was definitely the best racing to be seen over the weekend as far as I am concerned.

Well off now to Assen. I have never been there before so really looking forward to riding a very famous circuit.

See you in Assen,
