What is your role within SEG Racing Academy?
Since assuming my role as National Track Head Coach this year, I am the personal trainer for some of the SEG Academy riders. So I only make their daily training plans. This is a little different from the past two years, when I was a part of the complete performance team.

What are your academy goals for 2018?
SEG wants to develop their riders step by step to prepare them to turn pro later. This is exactly the same way I believe in. So the first 1-2 years I use to work on a bigger engine, before working more specific and show their skill to the pro teams.
