"Last year I was just too slow, I want to be faster. last year I only did the last 4 Rookies races, I have a lot of work to do, braking and corner speed, I've got to improve at left-hand corners, for some reason I don't have a good feeling."
"Through the off-season I don't have the chance to ride a motorcycle, Austria is full of snow so I snowboard, it's a lot of fun but completely different to riding a bike. I am also in the gym 4 or 5 days a week working on fitness, I was a bit unlucky and broke my left collarbone in early February while I playing with some friends, I had it plated but that stopped me training a bit."
"I want to be in the top ten this year and I am looking forward to my first full Rookies season. I can't wait to get back to Assen where I started last year, that's a great track, very fast. It is great to be at the races and watch the top guys, I'm a Valentino Rossi fan and in the 125 I like Ranseder, everything he does impresses me."
