2019 Testing Underway #96CREW

Hey Everyone, It’s Friday 8/02/19 and it is the day after our two day test at Valencia. It was the first run out on the bike since our last test in Jerez which was at the end of 2018, so we had lots of work to get through.

We got heaps of work done, we tried so much and changed a lot of things to understand the direction we need to go in, the feeling is improving, my riding style is adapting and I do feel that there is more to come in both the bike and myself, we have another five days in testing Jerez so I will be able to work more on that. As the bike changes and I get more comfortable with the feeling, my riding style changes also, putting my body in a better position on the bike.

What am I taking away from this first Test…..

I am growing a greater understanding with the feeling of the bike, it is great to have time with the team also understanding how we all work together which is fantastic. I keep learning each time I ride, and that to me is what this year is about. We have a base setting now to go to Jerez with, and I am feeling ready and excited to get back on my Angel Neito Moto 2 bike again. I leave to come home from Spain and head back to the UK this weekend, I will have 5 days preparing myself before getting ready to leave again for Spain the following weekend.

It is a great feeling to know that the season is now underway with Testing, after Jerez we have a test at Qatar at the beginning of March which will set us up ready going into Round one at that very track, a lot of riding between now and then, just how I like it.

I will of course keep you all updated over the course of the testing at Jerez, but for now I hope you guys have a great weekend and I will be back on my blog with updates soon.
