Rider bio

After a disappointing first Rookie season in 2008 Harry repaid the Team's confidence in his ability by starting 2009 in great form. He was fast all through testing and racing for the win in the opening round in Jerez when he crashed and was hit by a following rider. The resulting concussion and a necessarily cautious recovery period meant that he missed much of the season. Back in action late in the year he demonstrated that he certainly retained his enthusiasm and is determined that 2010 is the year that pays off so that he can bet back on the trail of emulating his heroes Troy Bayliss and Valentino Rossi. "I would like to have a long successful career in grand prix racing. After I retire from racing I would like to become a rider coach or a team manager." Such a career would allow him to indulge in his favourite school subject which is Geography. Apart from that when he is not racing he enjoys running, cycling and Xbox.
