Loads of stuff that people are doing on or off the bike, and I will spot it quick. It doesn't mean I can do the same thing but I will see it. If I go to a motocross or a supercross track I can see how they are doing it… I just cannot do it.

I don't regret any decision I have made. Should I have stayed with Ducati? Yeah, probably, and I think I’d still be there. Continuity is good and my third [and last] year at Tech8 was my best but I’d like to try a different manufacturer if only for the passion of riding and trying different bikes and the sense of being on the podium with another manufacturer.

I thought ‘f--- that: how is that possible at eighteen years old?’ I understand the aspect of learning, and how hard I was on myself. One thing I think I would be good at is seeing things. I see things pretty quickly.
