When things get a little out of control ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿคช๐ŸคŸ
Some wild wet days going down in Wales at the moment & I love it!
Love the feeling of sliding into corners & over roots, itโ€™s sketchy, it makes your heart beat & is kinda soft when you crash ๐Ÿ˜‚

Seriously tho, testing today was so good with Polish Pete helping me fine tune my setup. 8 fast times runs & a couple of significant changes & P1 feels FLIPPING AMAZING & more like a race bike ๐Ÿ”ฅ Thanks Polish Pete!! โค๏ธ @polishedracing (Pete also sells his dope spanner from my stories๐Ÿ”ฅ)

Mint few days testing stuff on Prototype 1 in Spain - ๐ŸŒž
lots of changing spring rates & compression, testing different things & letting Marek loose with a hammer!! ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘ .
Itโ€™s a slow steady process getting used to a new bike so it feels like an extension of my body, figuring out exactly the setup that allows me to be 100% race confidant, I am super SUPER fussy & everything has to be right & make sense - P1 is feeling pretty good already! .
