‘HE COULD HAVE GONE EVEN FASTER’
“Sam rode the perfect race, and he could have gone even faster if he had needed to. Even better, I wasn’t there to see him win his first race so I got to see him win one today. It was mint!
“I don’t know if he’ll win the title – but he’ll have a good go at it. To win a title, you always need a bit of luck, but he’ll be trying as hard as he can and he’s as talented as every other rider in the class.
“Coming from production racing, he’s had people telling him how to ride or what to do – and he’s done his own thing. Jerez in the heat is one of the most difficult tracks to ride, and he went out there, riding the way he always did, and made it look easy! I like that about him!”
