Although I won by eight seconds it wasn’t a very easy race. My tyre was way past its best and my visor was misting up. My friends Sam and Greg were giving me a pitboard showing me the gap behind me which meant I was more relaxed and for the last lap they made the board in this picture.

Thanks so much to S&B Automotive Academy, RJW Consultancy, White Dalton Motorcycle Solicitors, Dunlop, JHS, the whole Cox family, Andy, Rob, Nige and, of course, my gorgeous wife. This feels awesome and wouldn’t have been possible without so much great help.
