19th in troubled qualifying at Snetterton round of the British Superbike Championship
June 20th, 2015
We just finished qualifying at Snetterton, we've been quite good all weekend, we've had good pace and have been in the top 6 all the time, I've been feeling quite comfortable on the bike for probably the first time this year. We went out in Q1 and ended up 6th which was pretty positive. Q2 came on, I went out of the pits and I felt the seat move and I thought the actual seat came off, it was actually my seat foam so I quickly came into the pits and it started raining and I missed the qualifying lap, everyone got one lap in and that was their time so I ended up 19th on the grid which was a big bummer. We got the race tomorrow and the good thing is my pace is up, I've been passing guys quite quickly and easily and the bike feels quicker this weekend with the new engine. From 19th on the grid is going to be hard but will try to stay out of trouble in the first laps, keep pace and hopefully come through and make a good time so for the second race I can be a lot further up the grid and try and be a lot stronger.

Michelin test duty at Aragon circuit in Spain with Yamaha MotoGP
June 18th, 2015
I was here to test the Michelin tyres, I worked through their programme and it was great to ride a MotoGP bike again. I loved it today because the bike is really impressive and the team were great to work with. It's nice to be called by Yamaha and asked to come test for them and hopefully I'll get the chance to work with them again.

Snetterton BSB Test
May 28th, 2015
It’s the first time this year it has felt like my bike. I just haven’t had any feeling with it for the first three round, a little bit at Brands but not like today, we have made quite a few changes these two days, it has been a good test as we had the new tank which I waited until today to test. My position on the bike is different now, I am quite a bit higher than before. This seemed to change the bike for me, it’s easier to ride and suits my style more. Basically, every track is new to me except the first round. Oulton Park was a disaster, I was really upset with my performance, so the last two or three weeks I have been trying to think of a way to fix myself to suit the bike but I feel today I have found the right direction.
