How was the lap with Randy [Mamola] on the two-seater race bike?
It was just incredible. To trust your life to somebody like that, plus having never been above 100mph before on a bike; I just went straight to the top [emotionally]. To have that experience was just insane. The front tyre was lifting off the ground in fifth gear going down the pit straight. I just didn’t know if he was showing-off, or if that’s what happens all the time. There was so much to digest; I was at information overload for the first half of the lap. I always know the tracks and corners that I race on, but because I’d never been around the circuit here in Barcelona before I was lost out there as well. It was an incredible experience and a privilege to experience just what these riders – who are some of the most physically fit athletes in the world – do at every event.
