“Electronics were also new to me, but the team were great and really took their time to help me. I needed to ride in a completely different way, and it was great to be able to chat with Jonathan (Rea) to help me in this area.

“I had two silly little crashes but at the end of the weekend I adapted well. I went faster in most sessions and only finished two places after scoring a point at the world championship I want to thank Lucio TPR Team Pedercini, they were so welcoming and to Guim, and Johnny (Rea) and KRT for all their help.

“It was also a lot of fun to attend the show from the paddock and meet so many fans. It was a great experience and I loved it. I learned a lot and I hope I can use it again on the world stage at the ‘coming.
