It is a bike I know well and have had success on – it seemed like the right thing to do. I got an excellent start in Atlanta and got the win, so I’m pleased that individuals made the call to switch to the three hundred and fifty.

A: Generally I’m really pleased with the way I raced. I got a great start plus won the race, which are the 2 most important things, but Cody has been riding well and I made some mistakes that I’m not happy along with. When Cody moved into the lead I could see that he was pushing 100 per cent. I was happy to follow him because I knew with all the track the way it was it was likely to be a tough race. I guess it was mid-race when I started to push tougher. I got back into the lead plus managed to open up a pretty good benefit at the finish.

Winning Endurocross can be never easy so every point will count from now on. I feel like I am riding well, but so are they will. Thinking about points and not just going for competition wins is going to be important. It’s likely to be fun.
