Team Suzuki MotoGP hopes to carry on where it left off

Team Suzuki MotoGP will be competing in this weekend's Alice Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland at Sachsenring in Germany, eager to capitalise on the superb second place Kenny Roberts Jr secured last week in England.

Roberts Jr qualified in third place at last year's German Grand Prix and both he and team-mate John Hopkins then raced their Suzuki GSV-R's to top-10 finishes at the demanding eastern German track. A feat both riders will be hoping to at least repeat – if not improve upon in Sunday's race.

Team manager Paul Denning said: "Sachsenring is a very twisty circuit that will put tremendous demands on the Bridgestone tyres and the set-up of the GSV-R. Whilst outright power is not a priority as such, the riders still need excellent acceleration and strong mid-range power. We hope the improvements at Donington will prove themselves to be a step forward at Sachsenring, whether the conditions are wet or dry."

"The team is still on cloud nine from last Sunday's result but we know that we will have to start all over again this weekend - beginning with Friday's free practice," added Denning. "Last weeks podium is now in the past and we will have to carry on working with the same drive and enthusiasm we have shown all season to make sure the step by step improvements continue, and that we allow the riders to use their talents to the full."
