Jerez, Spain

Classic Bike (UK) - - ’93 TITLE 25 YEARS ON -

It was funny, Alex Bar­ros [Schwantz’s new team-mate] came from five sec­onds be­hind. I was watch­ing my board, think­ing: ‘Who is com­ing?’ I looked back and saw it was Alex. I was like: ‘Come on, I want to see this!’ I jumped in be­hind him and went with him. He was fast ev­ery­where, so we rode away from Wayne like he was tied to a post. Then through those two fast rights near the end of the lap my bike went side­ways, so I stood it up, went through the grass, gath­ered it back up again and got back on the track, by which time Wayne was back to within a sec­ond of me. Then Bar­ros crashed. I man­aged to hold off Wayne by a cou­ple of sec­onds.
