Fun Fact: 2009, 1st - Australian Superbike Championship

Team Suzuki Press Release


2010 – What a year! It has had its ups and definitely some downs but it finished on a real high!

I started off the year feeling great and having the Number 1 plate, so going into Round One at Phillip Island I was feeling really confident. Things went ok at the Island and I was fastest or second in every session. The first race I battled for the lead but made a mistake on the final lap finishing third.

Race Two was looking good and I was able to get into the lead and put a small gap over the field until the shifter broke and I was stuck in third gear. I was able to limp home in 13th position and the Championship was looking tough!

We then headed off to the hot and humid far northern city of Darwin where I had my best round ever being fastest in every session and winning both races which was great for me and the team!

Leading up to Round Three of the championship, Suzuki Australia did something that I had dreamt of doing for so many years, which was organising a test in America with the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team. Yep that’s right; the team Mat Mladin and Ben Spies rode for! I raced Round Three of our Championship at Queensland Raceway and finished second in both races, which was good for the Championship, and then the next day I jetted Stateside!

I then tested for two days at the Barber Motorsports circuit in Alabama which was awesome. I was so lucky to have Phil Tainton come over with me. We worked together and ended up with some very good times at the test which was awesome.

We then had a mid season break in the Championship which was cool, but it got a lot cooler when the Rockstar Makita Suzuki team rang asking if I was interested in filling in for the next two rounds of their Championship.
