“Time to step up! And go big! After five years in MGP, I feel ready and prepared for new challenges. Now that the registration has been sent, there is still the agonising wait for start confirmation.

At the same time you have to get good enough motorcycles and enthusiastic sponsors. The next two months will be hectic.

Happy New Year to all!”
