Oulton Park

For Race 2 we made another step forward and the bike felt a lot better again. I might sound like most riders, but I can't stress how important it is to get time in the seat and the more time I do, the more comfortable I feel.

I was in the battle for seventh which was cool, my feeling was getting better each lap and it was good to be in a good fight for a top ten finish. I crossed the line tenth and obviously would have liked to finish higher in the standings, but on hindsight it was good to get some feeling back and prove that I can run with these guys. Hopefully I can become more of a threat for podiums in the near future.

The Milwaukee Yamaha team have been great - very professional and there's always a great atmosphere in the garage. I feel very much at home and each weekend we are gelling that much better as a team. I'm confident the results will soon come, which I feel all the team members deserve for their hard work.

I now have a six week gap until my next hit out. Until then I hope to go support my mates and team at the major Road Racing events! I'm also really looking forward to going to watch the Cardiff Speedway GP.

As I'm sure everyone knows, fitness is a big part of the process so I will be keeping up my strict fitness regime to come back fit and ready for Knockhill.

If anyone has any questions they would like to ask me, please feel free to write below in the comments section and I will do my best to get back to you.

Until the next round, keep enjoying the racing and if you are out on the road, drive safe and use those mirrors!!

"useless" is he? Just like all those other useless Aussies like Bayliss, Corser, Stoner, Gardner etc etc that came to race in the UK. Give the man a chance. He's in a new team, on an unfamiliar bike riding on circuits he's never seen before and that are nothing like those in Australia.

Not sure why I was surprised to see there are ******* commenting on these forums, like most other forums. Anyway - good on you Josh, the local boys are going to have their work cut out for them as the year goes on, especially when you're back at the tracks for a second time. Let it dance!!!
