I am really excited to be moving into Superbike; it is the premier class and it has been something I have aspired to for the past ten years. I wanted to finish on the podium in Supersport this year and I achieved that so I feel that this is now my next challenge and a new chapter for me. I believe I have shown that we could run a strong pace in Supersport and we were all running at lap record pace so I hope that we can be where we are aiming for initially straight from the off. Everyone has seen what Luke [Mossey] has done this season and that is almost a carrot for me because it shows what a rider moving up from Supersport can do. My aim for next season is to be the top rookie, I think Glenn [Irwin] also making the step up is a good target for me, so I want to learn and then keep pushing on through the season - I don't want to be there just to make up the numbers!
