Rider bio

It is worth remembering what the Speedway expert said when looking forward to his first road racing season last year; "I am not worried about going road racing, it's just another motorbike. I've raced all different sorts and this is just another one. I slide it more than other people because of riding on the dirt so much. The first thing I realised was that I had to use the rear brake a bit less, I was locking up the back too much." He certainly picked it up quickly, of course there were a few mistakes along the way but overall it was a great year and he was more than ready to learn the different skills he needed to apply on tarmac.
