Thoughts on winning the Australian FX Superbike Championship
October 7th, 2013
My year started a little slow, but the last few rounds have gone really well and I’m proud to have won this championship. I have really enjoyed racing in Australia again and the YRT crew have been fantastic to work with. It’s great to be a part of a team that really wants to win. I also want to congratulate Rick (Olsen) and Kevin (Curtain) for their efforts this year and racing with them has been a lot of fun as both are such great competitors. Our race bikes have been in great shape all year and Kevin Marshall, John Redding and everyone that does the long hours behind the scenes all deserve to be a part of this championship.
