Yamalube Yamaha Racing (MXD) - Scott Bishop
‰ÛÏFirst of all, I want to throw out a big thank you to Mike Ward and Cory Hillsley, the guys on the tools in our team, as the first couple of rounds have been hard work. With both riders having crashes and straightening out bent bikes, to the race to race maintenance and then to have a mud race in the final moto of Appin just made their weekend even harder, so thanks to them for their efforts.
‰ÛÏWe were pretty fortunate to get the win at Appin as several things went our way. It‰Ûªs not often a 7-1 wins the overall but sometimes you get lucky, and we got lucky. Cody was amazing in the last race and when all the other riders struggled with the conditions, he looked right at home and the win is a good confidence boost for him.
‰ÛÏCoop had a tough weekend in that he desperately wants a good result but sometimes tries to push it and make mistakes at the wrong times. He was frustrated after the weekend but that will only motivate him more for the next round. It is something we are working with both riders on and that‰Ûªs how to be a smart racer, not just a fast racer but I think both riders are learning their lessons and will be better for it.‰Û
