It has taken Jack Miller (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS) a long time to get back to 100% fit after breaking his right leg in a motocross accident in pre-season, but the Australian rider is now confident he is back to his best after the summer break and heads to the Red Bull Ring – Spielberg eager to get back on his bike. As well as his spectacular win at a rainy TT Circuit Assen earlier in the season, the Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider has also been gaining momentum in the dry and is looking to keep the results rolling.
"It will be important to keep the momentum going. It was nice to try the track out in Austria before this weekend at the recent test and I was able to put in a really strong race rhythm there." Jack Miller
Jack Miller: “After a relaxing summer break I’m raring to get started again in Austria and build on the performances of the three previous races. I ended the first half of the season really strongly, so it will be important to keep the momentum going. It was nice to try the track out in Austria before this weekend at the recent test and I was able to put in a really strong race rhythm there. We need to wait to see what the tyre allocation is from Michelin but tyre life at the test was not an issue for me. It will be an interesting race because it is a horsepower track. That might help the red bike a little more than our package but like always I’m ready and motivated to give it a good go. This is the first race this year that I am going into with a lot of confidence and at 100% fitness with a good feeling on the bike, so I’m really keen to get going again.”
