Kunmadaras, Hungary


Really tough track with really rough concrete and we had huge problems with last years race. Preparations began in February to find a set-up that could work on this course. I had no mechanic with me to Hungary, but was helped by my friend and colleague Fredrik Fredlund both of lifting up and push the bike back and be able to share tuning ideas with. After the first round, I realized that although we have removed over 30% of power and clutch pressure was not enough. After further adjustments, we managed to run 6.69 s @ 334km / h and was number one qualifier. Set a new European record in ET 7.27 s @ 306.87 km / h) and to be the fastest bike all classes. The sprocket hub broke in the semifinals and this put an end to our elimination.
