"On Saturday, I did my best to hang in there," said Hayden. "My Yosh-prepped Suzuki GSX-R1000 was working well and I wanted to be there to take advantage if I could make a pass, but in the end, I couldn't make it happen. On Sunday, there were a couple of places on the track where I was better, but my lap times were pretty similar to yesterday. I'm happy to make a little improvement today, moving up a spot, but I would rather have been the winner. Overall, the bike is running good, and I have everything I need to get the win."
