Alzamora sets his sights on first podium of the season in Jerez

This weekend we´re racing in Jerez and my main objective is to score my first podium finish of the season in front of the Spanish fans. Up to this point, things have been going quite well, and although it´s been said that the Championship doesn´t really get started until Jerez I think the two opening rounds will prove important. Those races in Suzuka and Welkom were rather strange because of the extreme conditions, but despite that, I enter the third round of the championship in fifth place, just four points behind the provisional leader.

We´re currently working hard to improve the bike still further, and make use of all its potential so that we can be right up there from the first qualifying sessions, and get a good position on the starting grid so that I don´t have to come from down the field in the races.

I´m really looking forward to seeing how the circuit of Jerez looks now after the building work, and I´m also eager to try out the new track surface. I always enjoy riding at the Andalusian circuit because you get such great support from the thousands of spectators who make the journey to watch. I hope this year I´ll be able to pay them back by challenging for victory, and gaining a result that will put me even closer to the top of the class standings.
