Aussie youngster Jack Miller believes his HRC-backed step into MotoGP with LCR Honda next season is not one too far and says that with the right attitude, anything is possible.
The Red Bull KTM rider, who currently leads the Moto3 championship standings, will partner Cal Crutchlow on a RC213VR-S in 2015, missing out on the middle Moto2 step which is usually the favoured route to the blue riband class.
Miller revealed that he has been in discussions with HRC since the Le Mans round to make the switch which was finally announced after the Misano round.
“Of course I am over the moon to have this opportunity. Sure there are a lot of question marks but as Marc has said, he went up to Moto2 but he was a lot lighter than I am and smaller so I think physically, I can ride it but I’ve only been on a road bike since 2009 so going to MotoGP is a big step,” said Miller, speaking at Aragon.
“It’s a long term thing but I believe with the time, the right attitude anything is possible. It is a motorbike, it’s got two tyres and an engine so we will do our best. For sure my goal is to win the Moto3 title.
“I will miss out on riding a 600, learning to ride a bike similar to a GP bike but what I lose there I will gain by doing two years in GP. I am going to have to train a lot. Physical training is important to put on a lot of muscle.”
