"It has been tough to begin with when I saw the new tracks and these guys have ridden them so many times. I've been concentrating on setting up the bike, getting over my jetlag and finding some speed. I honestly can't compare this to anything else I have done in my career so it's hard to know what to expect. To be honest I would be really stoked if I get where I expect to be, but I think it's better not to talk about it. I put so much pressure on myself last year with the European 250 title so now I'm enjoying the trip, going to give all I can on raceday and see where we are weekend by weekend."
