The fact that I broke my own record is amazing because to me, it means that I’ve grown as a rider and have improved. Of course all this just didn’t happen on 7.9 seconds, that was a result of countless hours of training, tuning, improving and experimenting.”
“It makes me happy to see that my hard work has paid off, even after winning seven titles, the feeling of crossing the finish line before any other competitors is fresh every single time. I believe in giving my all when I’m on the track so I don’t have any regrets later.”
