TAPES-UP: Morris' learning curve
ROBINS boss Alun Rossiter has been impressed with the way young rider Nick Morris has taken his advice on board this season.
The 19-year-old Australian rider lives with Rossiter at his family home in Stratton, and the pair have formed a strong bond both at and away from the track over the last two years.
Rossiter has been impressing on Morris the importance of not relying on one engine throughout this season, and with the youngster producing some of his best form while his main motor has been away for servicing, the Robins boss is pleased to see him taking his advice on board.
“For a lot of the season he wasn’t listening, but in the last two months since he’s started taking more advice on board, his form has stepped up,” he said.
“The best example of that is with his engine and I told him not to rely just on one, and he’s been riding another one recently and you can see how well that has gone from his good form.
“I’ve been telling him that for ages and in the last couple of months the penny has dropped, he’s taken everything on board and that shows in his riding.
“Youngsters always want to do it their own way, but I think he respects me because he knows I can still get on the motorbike and have a skid.
“He can’t gate, although that used to be his strongest thing, but if I had two or three days to practise I reckon I could give him a run for his money.”
