Hi guys,

I have arrived in my new home in Andorra, great little spot in the hills of La Massana, perfect spot for training, the high altitude is a huge advantage to be training in.


Myself and ruben Xaus traveled over to aragon together, Once we arrived at the circuit we went straight to medical centre to get a clearance from the doctor to race, we got the go ahead to ride although my injury still isn’t 100%.

First things first Ruben and i did a track walk, First time for me in Aragon so I had a lot to lean, only have 1 day with the new bike and team at Phillip Island before breaking my shoulder, so it was a massive learning curve for us. The main goal for us this weekend was to get as much mileage as possible and try to adapt and feel comfortable in my new environment.

First impression with the track was great, the up and downs and series of slow and fast corners was a great feeling. Unfortunately my injury stopped me from being able to push for a good lap time, being only four and a half weeks from the incident, I didn’t have any strength at all in the shoulder so from that point we just tried to build strength and get familiar with the bike.


The race was super hard, I tried to push in the early stages of the race but the bike was to hard to ride with the new tyre, a lot heavier and required more energy and strength to do the lap time. Once the grip went away it was a lot easier for me to ride but even still the pain and lack of strength was to much to handle. I managed to do 13 laps in both races before being forced to retire, this is not the way id like to start my wsbk debut but its one of those things. Onwards and upwards for round 4 in Assen next week.

Im back home in Andorra now, training the house down to ensure we are much stronger for Assen and can fight for a good result. I will continue to push and make up for the lost ground.
