I've had two great races and results in a week, far too much time in an aeroplane and a very busy time ahead. Also I've made a decision about next season.
I've decided I will stay in the Moto2 World Championship and push really hard for the title next year. I have some options to consider but hopefully will be able to reveal my plans by the time we race in the next round at Aragon in Spain.
Racing against the top guys both at Indianapolis and Misano made me realise just how much I'm learning and there is still so much more to come. At my age another year will really benefit my career and so MotoGP can wait although of course it's my ultimate aim to ride in the greatest Championship in the World.
After those last two results I moved into fifth place in the Championship and I'm still in with a good shot of third place. The race at Indianapolis certainly helped those Championship chances although it was a tough weekend.
The biggest challenge was the new surface which made tyre life a real struggle and was a real headache which made us all a little nervous.
I made a great start from fourth place and what a feeling to be leading at the first turn and throughout the first lap at Indianapolis. I eventually finished fourth and was a bit disappointed not to get on the podium and beat my old 125cc rivals Tito Rabat and Pol Espargaro. After those two crashes in Germany and the Czech Republic it was good to be in the points again.
The surface at Misano was fine but it was another tough race which made me realise just how important my fitness levels are. We flew straight back from a tough hot race in America to an equally hot race in Italy and how do those riders in the Tour De France cope having to put their bodies through that every single day.
I felt a bit like a yo-yo in the race but it felt good to be riding with six of the best Moto2 riders in the world at the front. It was like being on a bungee rope - pulling up to the top four but then dropping back. Sixth was a decent result and it great to have the second battle of the week with Scott Redding. The two of us are pushing each other along and I hope that continues until the end of the season.
There was no doubt we all felt the effects of two races in a week with a transatlantic air trip in the middle. I'll be working even harder on my fitness especially for the two races in a week in Australia and Malaysia coming just after that long trip to Japan
