For round 4 of the Triumph Triple Challenge we were supporting the MotoGP at Silverstone. It was my first time riding the new track and as we only had a 20 minute session I didn't have long to get used to it. I only had time to do 8 laps so I didn't push it too hard and just concentrated on learning the track. I could feel the bike was under geared so after the session we changed that and then it became apparant that it was going to be a wet qualifying so we had to change the bike to wet settings as well.
