Guintoli ambitions turn to Le Mans

Guintoli ambitions turn to Le Mans

One of the home riders on track this weekend, Sylvain Guintoli reveals his expectations for Sunday and much more in an extensive interview.

One of two French riders taking part in the MotoGP Le Mans race this weekend, Sylvain Guintoli will be a focal point of events at the historic Bugatti circuit. In this extensive interview, the Alice Team rider talks past, present and future with regard to his World Championship career, and gives his thoughts on what the weekend will have in store.

Guintoli, like countryman Randy de Puniet, led the 2007 race when rain started to fall after just a handful of laps. It was his first time at the head of the MotoGP field, and included an audacious overtaking manoeuvre on five-time MotoGP World Champion Valentino Rossi. He later took a spectacular highside, but remounted to finish the race and draw plaudits from across the paddock.
