What are your thoughts on the future of the British Motocross Championship?
It is not for me to criticise and comment on the future of the British Motocross Championship as the people who are involved are doing their best. I am going to support them by training hard and showing that the UK has got something world class to offer. I would give two little things though I would like to see better tracks and less races.

The hardest race was one of my EMX rounds at Lommel where the temperature was 30 degrees and a 28 minute moto to complete.
