**** "Before Bastogne we'll go riding once and then on Thursday we are going to a Dunlop and Xtreme Academy day. It's going to be fun to spend some time with the Xtreme Academy riders, as I enjoy working with the youngsters to help teach them. It's also good to be working with Brian Jorgensen and I'm looking forward to taking time out of our intense schedule to do this, as the atmosphere will be relaxed. It's also good to be doing the event with Dunlop as they work hard on the development of the tyres, so it will be nice to spend some time with them and of course doing a little bit of fun riding with the bike is always good for us. With Bastogne it's difficult to say anything, as it's a new track for everyone. It looks like hard ground, so I hope it's prepared well and for me it would be good if it is quite fast with some sweeping turns. Physically I am getting better, but obviously in Portugal I had a big crash, so I hope to be feeling a bit less sore for the weekend."
