“Boss weekend at for the first round of the season, so good to dust off the cobwebs after a long winter. I had great battles all weekend and was pushed to ride hard. We earned ourselves some tin ware for the cabinet!

Incredible weather, the bike was flawless all weekend Thankyou to the Falcon Electrical Southport / PBR team for putting such a great bike under me. Managed almost 80 laps on one Bridgestone rear tyre and tried a range of settings to improve our pace.

We have a better bike than we arrived with at the start of the weekend and I’m getting more used to the old girl every time I sling my leg over.

Thanks to the team for looking after me, the sponsors that help keep the wheels turning, the photographers that have sent over some brilliant pics already and everyone for the support.”
