Lorenzo: “I trained a lot in California and Brazil”

Lorenzo: “I trained a lot in California and Brazil”

A summer break filled with training has Lorenzo confident of a strong second half of the season, though Indianapolis may prove a challenge.

In 2014 the layout and surface of the Indianapolis track were altered, improving the quality of the circuit while still maintaining the famous track’s unique nature. Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) has won once at the American track, back in 2009 and has only missed the podium once since then. No other rider has more podiums at the Indianapolis circuit than Lorenzo. His record suggests that once again Lorenzo will be in the hunt for the podium and potentially the win.
With 13 points separating Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi in the MotoGP™ World Championship standings a win will be the main thing on Lorenzo’s mind as he looks to cut the gap. Along with cutting the gap in the title hunt, Lorenzo will be aiming to end Honda’s domination of American tracks as they have won the last 11 MotoGP™ races held in the USA.

Jorge Lorenzo: “The summer break was a good chance to rest and recharge our batteries for the second half of the season. I was able to enjoy some sunny days at the beach but I also trained a lot in California and Brazil, where I spent many days before Indy. I feel great, I’m in a very good shape and ready to face the important second part of the season. The first half was not so bad considering the beginning, so we are feeling very positive and hopefully we can fight in the best way possible with Valentino and Marc. Usually Indy is not one of my favourite tracks but I’ve won there in the past. Last year the tarmac improved a lot but its layout is different to that of other circuits. I think we can contend for the podium again so we need to be very focused during the whole weekend to try to gain valuable points.”
