Haslam ‘We’re not out of it yet’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - MCN Sport -

Haslam might be be­hind Byrne in the ti­tle stand­ings, but that makes him no less de­ter­mined to clinch his maiden MCE Bri­tish Su­per­bike ti­tle.

And while the JG Speed­fit Kawasaki rider has had to con­tend with re-learn­ing most of the UK’S quirky cir­cuits this year, this is not a prob­lem he’ll en­counter at Assen.

Haslam fin­ished on the podium three times at the Dutch cir­cuit in his WSB ca­reer and knows the cir­cuit well. How­ever, he’s mind­ful the fast, flow­ing track could suit his ri­val.

“One crash doesn’t mean we’re out of it,” Haslam said. “I haven’t crashed out of a race all year un­til now so we just need to make sure we don’t do it again! We need to win as many races as we can to be in with a shout, there are still five races left and a lot of points up for grabs so it’s go­ing to go down to the wire!” ■ Haslam’s BSB fu­ture, p76
