Randy de Puniet ready for action in Jerez

French 250 rider Randy De Puniet turned up a day early for tests at the Jerez circuit in southern Spain today as he psyched himself up for his next stage of development as an official rider. The 22 year old, who celebrated his birthday last Friday, was on hand to watch his boss Lucio Cecchinello and teenage team-mate Casey Stoner put their 125 machines through their paces and revealed that he was feeling comfortable in his new set-up.

`The Safilo Oxydo Race – LCR team have made me feel very welcome and I am confident we can do well together,´ said De Puniet from pit wall. `We have only one bike here for this weekend but we should have two for the Catalunya test in three weeks so I don´t mind that. I could already tell at tests in Valencia that the official Aprilia is so much quicker than the privateer machine and I am really looking forward to getting back on it at this track tomorrow.´
