Despite being no stranger to the front row or podium, the number 17 was a little surprised to be P3 on the grid. “It’s a little bit of a surprise to be back here because the first two races we’ve been a little bit far and all this weekend so far we’ve not been near the front, so we’ve been working really hard,” said an up-beat McPhee. “I need to say thank you to KTM and to my team because we’ve managed to turn what hasn’t been an easy weekend into a front row start so yeah really really happy. The conditions were difficult, is was the same for everybody but we managed to make two laps at the end that were really strong and put us up there for the front row so it’s great because now tomorrow in the race we can try to understand what we’ve learnt from this practice and try and fight for the win tomorrow.”
