Elias commented, “I am so happy about this weekend. We won both races and the team did a great job with the bike.

“I got a bit lucky after running off the track. I came back step-by-step, passed some riders, caught the leading group and won the first race. In race two I was there up-front for the whole race. Two wins for the weekend was very important for the championship. We must continue like this.”

Hayden, who set a new track record onboard his new GSX-R1000 in qualifying, added, “The record stood for a long time, so I’m really happy about that. I’m proud of our performance. The team is working really hard and I’m looking forward to Laguna Seca.”
