The word is out. Hope he can finally make it happen. Interesting to see him move to America for winter training (I know he's been doing that for a few years now) especially since there has been a lot of discussion about the tracks not being rough enough over there for proper outdoor training.

Talent for years, but we haven't seen very much of him (comparable with Pootjes).
Hitachi KTM looks a solid team for years now, so could be a good match.

The choice for USA in the winter is mostly because of the weather like he stated, basic fitness and training hours.
I think the final touch should be done in Europe: power, speed, stamina on rough tracks in cold/bad weather.

I remember a couple years ago at this trainingcamp, he had a massive truck and pit and not only did he had a couple of bikes under there, he also had a jetski. It was at that point I realised I was never ever going to make it. grin

Hope he does well.

Decent rider , but needs to step it up.. he has to be ready to go in 2020 when all the names have to move up.

As has been said, not short of $$
