Paddock Press: Reggiani on Capirossi´s 2008 season

Paddock Press: Reggiani on Capirossi´s 2008 season

Rider-turned-commentator assesses MotoGP veteran´s year with Suzuki.

Former rider Loris Reggiani is well qualified to review Loris Capirossi´s season as part of the Paddock Press series, having commentated on the experienced Italian´s exploits over the course of the year. Now working for Italian television coverage of the MotoGP World Championship, Reggiani has seen no dip in effort for Capirossi since his switch to Suzuki.

`The only thing I can say about Loris is that he gives 100% at every race, he´s a generous rider and I never met anyone like him,´ says Reggiani.

`Giving that much as his age, everytime he gets on track, it´s amazing. What I cannot say is what the level of his bike was. His team mate Chris Vermeulen never had exceptional performances in this championship so we don´t really know what the Suzuki is worth; we´ll have to wait another to see if Loris can win races even with the Suzuki, but fortunately he's a very patient guy!´

Tomorrow´s Paddock Press is a double-header, with the focus falling on Nicky Hayden and Anthony West.
