Mooi stukje uit dat interview, kunnen wij als Nederlandse fans en vooral Assen als circuit toch even mooi in onze zak steken.
How much does the Assen victory mean to you?
It was huge for me because it was a race that I fell in love with when I was a kid. I was eight or nine years old watching review tapes from '90-'94 with Kevin [Schwantz] and it was him being crazy on the brakes at the final chicane to pass Wayne [Rainey] and Wayne running off onto the grass and Kevin passing him back!
I remember great races in the 250s as well with Cadalora and Romboni. I remember Doohan when he ate shit there really hard at the fast left hander and hit the fence. I remember all that stuff so Assen was a huge race for me and it was really important in Superbikes to win there and if it was the only GP race that I could have won, I'm glad that it was that one because it's the most historic race on the calendar.
That's what makes it even better because if I could only win one race that it was that one. That's the coolest race of the year and being able to come into that stadium after you win the race and everyone is going crazy is a good feeling. At that race all the fans have their favourite riders but all the fans love all the racers. They love racing and even in WSBK I noticed it.
I know that I had a lot of fans there but I noticed that it was the same for every racer. At some tracks in different countries the fans only cheer for one dude, but in Assen they love everybody.

Zijn schouder is geen probleem meer. En dat hij dus graag terug wilde komen.
