Thoughts on the 2017 season:

It has been a huge learning curve having spent my first season on board a 1000cc machine. I had a really productive start in such a competitive class and managed to gain some solid results. Despite this I feel my season was cut short following a high speed crash at the Scotland circuit of Knockhill  leaving me with a broken back on the 5th outing.

I was very pleased with my initial progress and following a long recovery can’t wait to get back out on the race track. The 2018 season is going to be a brand new challenge that I am very excited to undertake, with winter testing planned out I am ready to give it my all for the return.
