“It’s been an awesome weekend for myself and my team. I’ve worked really hard to build my speed and race consistency so it’s rewarding to find myself on the MX2 podium. I’ve delivered some strong rides during the last few races but things didn’t seem to go our way up until now. It was nice to finally be able to put two solid motos together and that was my goal for this GP. I felt like I rode two strong races and made some good passes. We’ve come a long way in the season so now I can be positive for the GPs to come.”
