Loris Capirossi showed his experience in the premier class with a wily last lap of the Gran Premio bwin.com de España. Rizla Suzuki´s veteran star muscled out MotoGP rookies James Toseland and Andrea Dovizioso on the final corner of the Circuito de Jerez, taking advantage of the battle between the duo to sneak past and take fifth place.

`In the last couple of laps I fought with Toseland and Dovizioso, but I beat both of them in the last corner. That was for sure nice for me!´ beamed the winner of the 2006 Spanish visit.

`I think that this was a good result for us, and I want to thank all the team at Rizla Suzuki for this. We know that we have a really long championship ahead, and we will do our best to improve because our goal is to be fighting for the victory.´

Rizla Suzuki will continue working on the GSV-R in Jerez on Monday and Tuesday, to give both Capirossi and team-mate Chris Vermeulen improved options for a win in Estoril on April 13th.
