One of the best things about back-to-back Grand Prix weekends is the opportunity to either continue some good form or quickly put a bad weekend behind you.
Both cases are true for the ASPAR Team as the MotoGP World Championship riders head directly from Argentina to Austin, with no time to rest ahead of the third round of the season.
The ASPAR Team riders travel to Austin in contrasting moods, with Eugene Laverty flying high after his stunning fourth place in Argentina, where he finished as the top Ducati and top independent team rider after a crazy race.
In just two races this season the Irishman has already doubled his entire points tally from last season with the ASPAR team and now he is looking to add to his account with another top ten or twelve finish this weekend.
‰ÛÏI arrive in Austin with a lot of confidence after the fantastic result in Argentina," Laverty said. "I really want to keep the moment going and finish this weekend with another top ten or twelve. I want to be consistent and to continue in the points. Last year at Austin I finished sixteenth but now I have a year of experience under my belt. It is a physical circuit with a long straight but I think we can do well there.‰Û
