[Desalle will be mindful of the shallow and bumpy Valkenswaard sand this weekend. Although the Belgian is 100% fit and comes into the holiday fixture having claimed moto victories in France and the UK, the Dutch terrain south of Eindhoven has not always been friendly: In 2010 he dislocated a shoulder while in 2011 he rode to a solid fifth position - the only event from the first six of that season where he didn't finish on the podium. Still only 22, Desalle has no problem in accepting the now annual position and status of being a major Championship contender. "Another year and I am getting more experience in trying to fight for a Championship," he said. "If I have learned anything it is that something always happens throughout a season and the most important strategy is to aim for being consistent. Sometimes you have to remind yourself that the series is long and there are many motos to go. I feel good on the bike, we have a nice setting; and I knew from the race at Hawkstone Park that we were more-or-less ready for the sand. I won't be going too crazy this weekend. I just want to start the season in the right way and try to keep at a high level."
