It's elementary Will,
When someone waves dollar bills in your face and say they will pay for your bike's paint job as long as they can choose the colour and put their name on it. Then it is a no brainer to say yes thank you, and step aside and let them to it!!
I was tired of having people asking: "so how many times have you crashed your bike??"
Especially when the fact is that I've only crashed it once...!!
The spots on the tank that had lost it's paint after the crash and repair job were beginning to rust, and I would've had to do something about it soon anyway.
I've not got one, but two team mates. They are both riding Kwakkers as you see, so I'm not going to be threatened anytime soon as the number 1 man...
Andy, I see that our lines into turn 2 during the second race were very different. Yours was also more the line the f..king fast pros were using. The fact was that I was having to fend of the guy behind for the whole race, and was trying to cover all the passing opportuneties.
I was pretty happy with the weekend and the times we did. Especially considering that the 4 people in front of me were either professional sponsored riders or previously so. I could stay with them for about 2 laps, but then I would have to consentrate more about keeping my position. Only makes me look forward to the next round.
