Capirossi hoping for home success in the Tuscan countryside

Posted:

Rizla Suzuki is on its way to Mugello in Italy with Loris Capirossi aiming to kick-start his season on home soil for round four of the MotoGP Championship.

Capirossi has failed to finish the last two Grands Prix due to unexplainable crashes and is determined not to let that statistic hinder him as he aims for his 100th career podium.

The veteran Italian has a good record at the 5,245m Mugello circuit and narrowly missed a podium place in last year‰Ûªs race. He has started both Italian Grands Prix in his Rizla Suzuki career from the front row of the grid and is certainly hoping to keep that record intact.

‰ÛÏI am still very disappointed and angry about what happened at Le Mans and Jerez, but that is in the past now and we can‰Ûªt change that, but we can change what will happen in the future and we‰Ûªll certainly be trying to do that," Capirossi said.

"Mugello is a good place to start a strong comeback and I‰Ûªll be trying as hard as I can to get the season off the ground. It is a track I love and I know I can go well there. I have a lot of fans and friends who will all be at the track and I will be giving it everything to give them a good result, but most of all we need a good result for the guys in the crew, they have done a great job this year and the bike is much better than 2009, we now need to start getting the results to show that!‰Û
