We caught up with Ike ahead of this weekend’s second round at Culham MX Park, here is what Ike had to say.
RHL: The opening round took place at Preston Docks last month, how was the first round for you?
Ike: “The opening round at Preston Docks wasn’t the best round. I felt like I was ridding a bit tight and had a few crashes throughout the weekend, which didn’t help. I have trained harder thought and ready for Culham.”
RHL: This weekend see’s the Championship head to Culham, what are your thoughts on the track and what are your plans and goals for the weekend?
Ike: “Culham is a good track, its very technical and rutty. My aim is to win this weekend as I know I’m fast enough to win now I just need to prove it.”
RHL: This year you are racing for GL12 Racing, how is it going with the team and have you had much bike since Preston to prepare for Culham?
Ike: “ Yes GL12 Racing is a great team, they have helped me so much this year. I have rode a few times since Preston, working on certain things and getting myself prepared for round 2.”
RHL: Looking ahead to the rest of the season, what are your plans for each round and thoughts on the tracks left on the calendar?
Ike: “I’m hoping to be up there and be winning for the rest of the season. I am in good fitness and in the gym almost everyday. The tracks on the calendar are good and I am hoping to have a great season.”
