Best Meeting
All of my title winning meetings will go in the best meeting book and my first ever GP podium in Australia. Hard to chose just one.
Best Race
Wow, I’ve had so many good races over the years and all for different reasons. One I will always remember was in my early years in Sweden and I was partnered with my childhood hero, John “Cowboy” Cook. We came out of the first turn on a 5-1 over Jason Crump and Cooky was kicking his legs, waving to the crowd and doing fist pumps for the whole race!!! I was laughing my head off at him but at the same time nervous as hell as I had Jason all over me. We held on for the 5-1 and still laugh about it to this day.
Worst Meeting
I tend to forget these ones !!!! 🙂 mistaking the red light on a camera as the track red light in the World Team Cup final at Poole and stopping was not a good one, as the point I dropped cost us the meeting!!
