The season is now officially underway! I’ve qualified third in the
Superstock class and eighth overall in GP1 against the tuned bikes, out of
31 in total. I’m really happy with that as this whole weekend is about
learning the bike and refining the set-up.
So far the ZX-10R has been a bit awkward in the tight corners. Once I’d
stopped blaming myself and thinking I’d forgotten how to ride a bike, I
worked out some changes to make and chipped away at it. I’ve made more
changes in the same direction ahead of the race so hopefully it will be
The Superpole race today is 18 laps and will test every rider’s endurance.
In the sessions so far I’ve been really happy with my fitness and the
hundreds of miles of cycling and thousands of push-ups seem to be paying
off. The race is at 3pm – I’ll post the result by about 4.
Wish me luck.
