The build-up and race weekend at Silverstone was awesome. The week before I went to the Isle of Man to watch the TT Races. Unfortunately the rain stopped me riding round the mountain circuit on the parade lap but I still loved it over there.
I'd been once before and knew what to expect but what a track. I went round in the car for a few laps with Cal Crutchlow and every corner and section had a history and a story to tell.
My Tech 3 team came over on the Friday and they were staggered. They thought they'd seen everything in Motor Cycle racing including winning world titles but when they stood at the bottom of Bray Hill they were speechless.
The Isle of Man is an amazing place and I'll be back to complete that lap.
On the Wednesday before Silverstone we had the MotoGP Olympics overlooking the Olympic stadium. After three events which included flicking the beer mat onto the mug and darts the Moto2 team of myself, Scott and Gino Rea took the gold medal.
On Thursday the Day of Champions raised over £250,000 for the Riders for Health charity. I love the auction up on the stage and the leathers in which I rode my 100th grand prix fetched nearly £2000.
Despite the dreadful weather on Saturday the crowd was fantastic on Sunday. The support they gave all the British riders made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. I think all the British riders put it some fantastic performances to thank the crowd and Silverstone for putting on such a great show.
That brilliant support is such a boost especially when the going is getting tough. I know I speak for all the British riders when I say a really big thank-you. Let's bring you that grand prix victory you deserve next year.
