Racing the Yamaha in Germany was a really cool experience, but it was scary. The team was really cool, with really awesome people. There are three really, really good riders over there, real world-class guys that I raced against. It was tough, I crashed in the first race, but I was in second or third. Then, in the second race**, I took it easy and finished third because the track was pretty dangerous and I had this championship in the back of my head and didn't want to do anything stupid.** But I also had a chance to really bond with my boss Keith McCarty and Tom Halverson, which was awesome.
