"It's great, even though the record was not necessarily my goal. I especially wanted to cement my second place. The gap was small and I eased into my pace from the start of the dunes, so I wasn't going to change everything. Championship points are important too, so I pushed. The visibility made the dunes hard to jump. I feel good on sand, I can set a strong pace, I'm confident, I can drive aggressively while watching out for broken dunes. It's cool."
