Has the move to the 450 meant a mental adjustment as much as physical one?
Erm, more physically I’d say. On a 250 you can go full-gas the whole race but on the 450 you can push a lot for a few laps and feel quite tired, especially for me because I’m missing some training time. In Argentina it was not too bad but on Saturday here I pushed like I would on the 250 and after ten minutes I was done! You feel it more with your muscles and your breathing. The 250 is more intense…but for technique I actually prefer the 450.
