Into his 3rd Rookies Cup season Daniel knows that he has to capitalise on the promise he showed in 2008 and 9. He has to turn some good results into a great championship season. "I want to learn how to become a World Champion and go out and achieve that. I watched a documentary on Dani Pedrosa and that showed me how hard he works so he is my hero and I want to achieve in the way that he has." "When I am not riding my bike I like to do anything that is a bit risky like snowboarding or mountain biking and I like hanging out with my friends. At school I like maths and a bit of history. I have liked riding bikes ever since I was a kid and my parents bought me a bike. I just loved it from the start."
