Laverty: “I'm excited to see my bike again!”

Laverty: “I'm excited to see my bike again!”

Eugene Laverty is looking forward to jumping back on his bike and challenging for the Open class title at the Indianapolis GP.

Laverty feels he can make a lot more progress in the second half of the year after experiencing a steep learning curve in the first nine races. Laverty (7pts) currently trails the Open class leader Hector Barbera (19pts) by twelve points, and will be looking to close this gap at the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix.

Eugene Laverty: “I feel 100% ready for the second half of the season. My body really needed some time to recover from a few big crashes lately so the time off was a welcome break. I enjoyed one week of holiday to recharge and prepare myself for the remaining nine races. I've learned a lot during the first half of my rookie season, which ought to set us up for a strong end to the year. Things have been up and down but I'm confident that our speed is there to challenge regularly for Open class honours from here on. Indianapolis kicks off the second half of the season and the track looks fun to ride. I'm excited to see my bike again after a month apart!”
