Mossey: ‘ It’s time to fight for the ti­tle’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

One of the most promis­ing young tal­ents in the se­ries, Luke Mossey has his eyes set on fight­ing for the MCE Bri­tish Su­per­bike ti­tle in 2017 as he re­mains with the Bournemouth team.

Af­ter se­cur­ing a place in the top six Show­down this year, Mossey be­lieves the next step for him is to chal­lenge for his first BSB crown.

“It’ll be my third year with Bournemouth next year and we’re go­ing in off the back of a re­ally good sea­son,” he said. “The aim for us is to fight for the ti­tle. In year one we fought for the Rider’s Cup and this year our aim was to make the top six, and we did both of those, so the next step is to be fight­ing at the front.

“The first stage of that is to aim for my first win, which is some­thing we wanted to achieve this year but for one rea­son or an­other it didn’t hap­pen. BSB is so hard and com­pet­i­tive now, ev­ery­thing needs to be in the right place at the right time.”

The 24-year-old is ex­cited by the prospect of hav­ing Leon Haslam in the garage with him next year, and is hop­ing he can learn from hav­ing a more ex­pe­ri­enced team-mate.

“It’ll be nice to have Leon in the garage, hope­fully we can get some good feed­back from each other, es­pe­cially in test­ing.”
