We discuss the ups and downs, and difficult periods he went through particularly during Covid lockdown in 2020. Flynn opens up and gives us an insight into how he was thinking during this time, and what strategies he employed to bring himself back out of them.

We talk race plans as well as areas of his racing Flynn feels he can still improve a lot.
