"This is going to be a great season, very competitive, a lot of very good riders. I want to be racing at the front this year, racing with Fagerhaug, Major, Scholtz, Hiura. I think it can go like that."
"I have been training a lot in the off season, physical training, swimming plus getting out on the track on a 600 at Lédenon. That was a fun experience and quite different to riding the Rookies 125. Of course the 600 needs more strength to ride, it is not as easy to turn in and keep on line. It was a good experience though, the 600 has a bit more power and I think it helped my riding."
"It made me think that a 600 could be fun to ride in the future but I am concentrating on the 125 and learning to do the best I can in the Rookies Cup, it is a lot of fun and I really enjoy it, my favourite track is Assen, long and fast, just great."
