We’re three rounds into the 2014 GNCC season, has it gone anything like you expected?
No, I thought we’d have a dry race by now!

What was the biggest surprise for you in the switch to off-road?
How many factors go into getting a good result: pit stop, hydration, goggles, short cuts, strategy, lines…

You seem to have a pretty good outlook on the switch to off-road, not expecting too much too soon, but losing can’t be any fun for you. How long have you given yourself to “learn” this type of racing before you start expecting results?
As soon as possible, but by halfway through the year is my cut off. I’ll have it down by then.

Do you know if you’ll be on the 2014 ISDE Trophy Team?
I have no clue, but I hope so!! I had a blast last year.

Advice you’d give a motocrosser toying with the idea of going off-road?
Make sure you have patience and a will to work.

What are your goals for the season?
I want to be solid this season, get some top 5’s, and ultimately get a win or two before the end of the year.
