Blog | Olly Simpson winning at home

G'day Everyone,

Thought you all would like an update from Australia and what I have been up to. A couple of weeks ago, we had the World Superbikes on at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit and it was a great opportunity for me to get in some practice on the big track before my return to Europe at the end of this month.

I am also sponsored by the Circuit so it was great to catch up with them as well. I had a really good weekend and won all three of the Moto3/125 races and broke the Australian track record for this bike in every race. It was good to be on the podium and my good friend Troy Bayliss was also racing in the World Superbike race so that was good to watch.

Well done to my brother Mitch for his first ride on a Moto3 bike he did really well as he had not ridden a bike for over a year.

I have been doing quite a bit of motocross training as we have a track close to our home and also have been riding at home when I can. I feel like I am 100% ready for the coming season as I have been very well prepared over the summer here with exercise, nutrition and on the bike training.

I am looking forward to meeting all of my old Rookie friends from last year and also to meeting the new Rookies.

I would like to thank my awesome sponsers: Steeline Hunter, Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit and Rural Liquid Fertilize for continuing their support for the 2015 season.

Bye for now and I will see you all in Jerez for testing very soon.
