November 2, 2020
2020 has been a mixed-up year. I started the year with a double win and now I have ended the season with a perfect weekend, pole position and a double win. In between there have been some tough weekends where things didn’t go according to plan.
From the start of session one on Friday, I had a great feeling on the bike and could feel the improvements we had made to the mapping with the Rapid Bike system. This made the bike a lot smoother to ride I could focus on dialling the suspension in.
In the first race, I managed to holeshot and led from start to end. I pushed for the first five laps until I got a big enough gap, then just rode to manage the gap eventually winning by 7.8 seconds.
In race 2, the plan was the same. I got the holeshot and lead the first lap until the last corner where a small mistake led to me running wide and allowing Clint Seller through. I followed him for a few laps then made a pass and pulled a gap of 9.6 seconds. The perfect weekend. I was the only rider to lap in the 60s laps during qualifying, race 1 and race 2.
I look forward to working hard in the offseason to start 2021 off strong. I can’t thank everyone that has been behind me the last few weeks keeping me motivated to never give up on the dream. All the non-stop work with specialists to solve the issue and work to fix it has paid off. I also need to thank all the sponsors for their help and support. Without them, it would not be possible. Roll on 2021.
