17th place finish in the Jerez MotoGP race just missing out on points
May 4th, 2014
So here we are in Jerez, it was not the easiest race, I ran off the track on the first lap so I had to play catch up. My pace was better than Argentina I felt like I was better on the bike and quicker but we still need to find some time on the track and more time on the bike will help. I need to understand more about the bike and the tyres during the race, it was quite hot today. Its the first race back in Europe, there was a massive crowd, they’re so passionate about the sport, it’s a good feeling to race in front of so many people. We need to keep Improving, we got a test tomorrow, I’ve got a lot of things I want to try, during sessions we haven’t got enough time to test to get up to speed. I feel we’re making steps we just need to close the gap to the other guys so I can run with them in the race. Anyway roll l on the test tomorrow and hopefully we can be ready for Le Mans.

Still working on bike set up for Jerez qualifying
May 3rd, 2014
It wasn’t the easiest qualifying this weekend, we tried a lot of things, we’re trying to make the bike better over race distance as we struggled in the last race. Basically we lifted the bike quite a bit and tried to make a bit more transfer to make the bike a bit easier to ride and create a bit more grip. I think the bike improved a bit but in the qualifying we’re not where we thought we would be, to be honest we’re about half a second from a good pace. We got some good ideas for warm up tomorrow, we’re gonna meet in the middle with the bike and see if that works, fingers crossed that’ll be better. I got a few race tyres to choose from, I got a softer tyre for the rear but tomorrow we have to make a decision if we go with that, I think it could be an advantage. I think there’ll be a battle and hopefully I can be in the battle, the times are quite close so let’s see what happens. Click here to see the full video

Tyre and mechanical problems force retirement in Austin TX
April 14th, 2014
I hate retiring from races, when you've raced in 24-hour races it's always hard to retire after eight laps. I had a lot of chatter in the front from the start of the race and for some reason the bike felt really slow in first, second and third gear. I don't know if something was going on with the electronics but after that the chatter got so bad that I had to come in. It's unfortunate because in warm-up I had done some laps on used tyres and it had felt good so I don't know if it was a tyre problem or what that caused the problem. I haven't spoken to Bridgestone yet about it. There was definitely something wrong with my bike as well though. It was really slow and misfiring so the boys are going to look at that. The good thing about Argentina is that very few guys have been there so that's a bit more of a level playing field. Normally I learn tracks pretty quickly so it should be good.
