This weekend was the start of the showdown at Oulton Park. A positive weekend, topping the time sheets, qualifying on the front row and finishing on the podium but I need to win races at Assen, that’s all there is to it. If we’re going to win the championship this year the bike has to be right, I have to ride it perfectly every time out, and we have to have a 100% satisfying weekend. That’s what we’ve got to focus on trying to achieve. You try and achieve that every weekend, but that’s clearly what needs to happen for us to have a chance.
We head to Assen 2nd in the Championship.
