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.

Broc scores a point in his first MotoGP
March 24th, 2014
I didn't even realise I was 15th because I had P16 on my pitboard! Off the start I didn't know what to expect so I was a little bit cautious and tried to understand the tyres and the bikes. Then as the race went on I started to pick guys off, one came back past me, but in general it was good to do a race and start to understand the parts that I can fix and give the team some feedback to improve for the next race and hopefully be a bit closer to the front. The pace from the top guys was really quick. I had Petrucci and Barbera in the first stage of the race with some of the Production Hondas a little bit in front and I just tried as hard as I could to hang there, but their pace was too good so I need to up my game to stay with them for a bit longer.
