Harland had a steady start to his 2014 campaign, with the first track on the EJC calender being Aragon in Spain, where Josh finished his opening free practice session of the season in sixth. Taking his pace through to qualifying he secured an impressive front row start in third, giving himself a clear run to the line. In the close battle for the win Josh was able to secure a top ten position, just 0.038s shy of ninth.
Rain mixed things up a bit in Assen, and Harland found himself with a lot of work to do a from 14th on the grid following a tough qualifying, which saw him struggle to find any slipstream to get him into a strong position on the grid. He knew he had the pace to fight at the front and was in good spirits ahead of the race. Harland was up into third position after a strong fight through the field, but was pushed back into fifth on the last lap. Although all was not lost and the no.93 rider moved back up into third on the back straight. Unfortunately he lost the front end of his CBR500R but was able to rejoin the race and cross the line in 11th position.
