I know it was like a wild end to the night. I think you still even got 14th in the last race. But is it kind of nice, because it’s a Triple Crown, that it kind of salvages your night? Even if you have a big one, it’s still a decent result?
I think on that aspect, yeah. Because I had two crashes in the last two. So overall, luckily, I had a ninth and then a 16th and a 14th. Salvaged a 14th. Honestly, any other format, I probably would have just pulled off. That crash was kind of hard enough that I was like, yeah, I don’t need to be out here anymore. All in all, the bike was luckily in good enough shape to get around that final few corners and get to the finish. But it was good to be on the last lap and had that one not first lap.

I think right before the third main, and correct me if I’m wrong, I saw you. You didn’t do the parade lap, and you pulled in.
So, that was another thing. So, I had gotten my bike hit when I went down in the second one. And I didn’t notice it when I was out there, just from the adrenaline. Then when I went out there for the hot lap, I’m like, “Oh, I definitely have something wrong with my wheel.” So, I instantly backed out of where it goes double, double across. I just turned and went straight across the mechanic’s area. I don’t think they were even ready. Obviously, they were looking for me and stuff. And I’m like, “Hey, I got to get this changed.” So, we got it changed out. And it was kind of one of those moments I thought I was going to execute a start from it. You know what I mean? You’re already like adrenaline’s going and it wasn’t the case. I was probably five bike lengths behind the next guy beside me. So, yeah. Execute better starts in this Oakland race coming up and we’ll see what we can do.

We have a couple weeks off from now until Oakland. What are you going to do? What are you going to work on? What are some things you’re looking to improve on?
Just stay consistent. It’s been going in the right direction up to this point. So I think for me, just stay consistent through every main event. I feel really strong fitness-wise and the bike’s getting better each round. Obviously, with California raining out for the last few weeks, it’s been hard to just get time on the bike. So, looking forward to getting more seat time. I’m going to go east and ride with some of the guys over there and then come back out here for Oakland and the rest of the west coast rounds. So, I look forward to getting over there and getting back to home territory and a bit more familiar people and grounds, and stuff like that.
