“I’m super excited to get back to racing. It’s been about four months now since I got hurt. I don’t think I’ve taken that much time off a dirt bike in a long, long time, so it’s been about the longest four months of my life. I’ve been back on a bike now for probably five weeks and I’m feeling really good. Yamaha came out before the Florida National and I was able to get some really good testing in. I’m really happy with my bike right now. Heading to Southwick, my expectations… I really want to get a good start and run with the top guys. I’ve been practicing my starts this week. I’m ready to do some work and looking forward to seeing everybody again.”
