Hofmann to ride again with Kawasaki at Brno

After three weeks of rest and recuperation the Fuchs Kawasaki Racing Team are preparing to return to action this weekend at Brno with another three pronged assault on the MotoGP World Championship. Regular riders Garry McCoy and Andrew Pitt will again be joined by test rider Alex Hofmann, set to make his fourth wildcard appearance of the season. For the holidays the Kawasaki riders spread across a hot, sun-baked Europe with Hofmann and Pitt heading for the beach in Italy and France respectively, whilst McCoy retreated to his alpine apartment in the Pyrenees principality of Andorra.

"I have spent almost every day on the beach in southern Italy," said Hofmann, who finished seventeenth in his home race at the Sachsenring two weeks ago. "It has been really been fun and relaxing although I have been on my bicycle for two hours every evening making sure I stay fit. The Brno track is quite technical and fast and one that I really like; I'm hopeful that I will have a good chance of scoring some championship points there. At our recent test in Brno there was a good step forward with the new Dunlop tyres, especially side grip, and the data from the test should give us a good starting point for the ZX-RR set-up this weekend."
