Thanks for the great weekend ! I'm sooo happy
Now it's time to get serious about riding because NESBA I is a no joke ...

Thanks Tom , Brian, Greg and NESBA CRs for their patience and skill in keeping riders in control of their environment. It's helping a LOT and It helped me. It's funny how true appreciation of the good advice comes at the time when you get to experience its fruits

Congrats Andrew! Great job out there. I followed you around for your first 5 or 6 laps in the I group yesterday and you looked very comfortable and right at home. Great job! Big improvements in your riding over the season.

Good job Andrew. Riding behind you in for awhile it was obvious you were going to get that bump. Great riding - CONGRATS!!

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

Way to go Andrew!!! I couldn't make it to many trackdays this season but it was always a pleasure pitting next to you bro. Your hard work really paid off and I'm very happy for you. Each time I would see you out there, you just kept getting better and better than the previous time I had seen you. You've taken a great share of spills and nothing ever stops you from going back out there. Man that kawi has been through hell and back jk I remember when you crashed at BHF earlier in the summer, you just grabbed a bag of ice and went to work on your bike right away so you wouldn't miss a session. I think I was more worried about you than you were about yourself lol. It's awesome to see someone who works that hard and has that kind of determination get rewarded. Congrats bud!!

crashing is not everyone's favorite chapter in the "Speed secret revealed" book. Tom does not like to talk about it. But the chapter is there nevertheless, or so I was told. LOL . what they say - "no pain no gain" ? fortunately for me though it was more of a "no shame no gain" lesson(s) ....


hope to see you next season !
