Who would have thought that the first year is about learning. What I've seen in a little over 30 years of bike tuning is that a change that makes the bike technically capable of going, say 0.1sec faster but makes the rider feel better on it will result in him going about 0.5sec faster.

it was very noticeable in the quallies the change in his style , i was very impressed with what i seen , always knew his style was terrible on that yam , if he can work on keeping this style he will no doubt move up the board , he actually looked fast and smooth.

Hopefully next year on (supposedly) equal machinery to Pol, he'll be able to silence his critics.

I've become fed up of all the armchair experts saying he shouldn't be on that bike. I think that Herve Poncheral may know talent when he sees it...

He's had a very solid learning year and has taken everything in his stride - keep up the good work Bradders!
