"I'm really looking forward to a good week of racing in Navarra. It's going to be my first race on the WR450F and I'm excited about it. The 450F has lots of controllable power, which I think will help this week as many of the special tests are fast. I've spent the last couple of weeks training on the 450F and the feeling is great. The ISDE can be a tough race, but it's always a fun one. Without the pressure of the world championship, the plan is to do my best for Team Great Britain while trying to secure the best possible individual result in Enduro 2. It looks like it's gong to be a largely dry and dusty week. I'm hoping to start steady and just continue plucking away. I'll just take things day by day and fight for the best result."
