Miller: “We can't get ahead of ourselves”

Jack Miller may have proven himself as a bona fide top ten finisher in the premier class, but he’s not getting carried away.

Barcelona saw Jack Miller (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS) take his first ever top ten finish in the MotoGP™ World Championship. There were a few incidents ahead which helped the Australian and as such he’s remaining realistic for the historic Motul TT Assen, aware he’s not suddenly going to be challenging for the podium. Miller is staying realistic but he’s as motivated as ever and used the two-week break between races to train on the Isle of Man on his bicycle. Every week without a race is useful for the Australian who is still trying to return to full fitness after injuring his leg during the pre-season.

Assen will host the 250th four-stroke MotoGP™ race and will also be the first round at the Dutch track to take place on a Sunday. It’s set to be a landmark weekend for the championship and for Miller himself who is continuing to get stronger. In 2015 Miller had shown well on the Open Honda but came together with another rider early in the race. His best result in Assen is seventh, achieved in 2013.

Jack Miller: “It was a good weekend in Barcelona, but we can't get ahead of ourselves off the back of one good result. We found some direction in Barcelona and we need to keep working to improve both our qualifying performance and our race pace. I'm looking forward to getting to Assen and giving it a go round there. I like the track; last year I had really good speed there on the open bike, so I'm looking forward to trying the factory bike there this time around.”
