Rider bio

"I am out to finish in the top three... or win the Cup this year. I worked hard all winter to be ready for the start of the year. I did a lot of boxing training, everything except getting into the ring. I did everything I could, also riding motocross and mini bikes."

"I am also going to be doing the British Championship on a 125 Honda, so a lot of racing. I really want to progress this year and then move on to Grand Prix next year, I know you need to be on a good bike so I have to show what I can do this season in the Rookies Cup."

"One of the things that I know I have to improve on is qualifying, it is going to be so competitive this year that you have to have a good grid position. Plus I've not got to break any bones like I have the last two years."

"It is a lot of fun riding the Grand Prix tracks, my favourites are Jerez and Assen, the first I go well at and the second I like the surface and the layout. Of course I watch the GP stars and it is Alvaro Bautista that really impresses me, he even compares with Rossi."
