New Kawasaki challenge
September 13th, 2010
Hope you like the new style web-site reflecting the changes which have happenned over the last few weeks.

I had a phone call from the Kawasaki World Supersport team asking me to test the bike at Almeria and stand in for injured Joan Lascorz who is out for the rest of the season.
I jumped at the chance having just split with Echo CRS Honda and the test went well so I had my first competitive ride on the bike in World Supersport at the Nurburgring.

I was pleased with my first race on the bike and ended up with 3rd which was a great result for me and the team first time out. I was hoping to be a bit closer to the front but we have a bit more set up work to do and I have to change my style again to suit the Supersport bike.

We have 2 days testing at Valencia this week so hopefully we can be closer to the front at Imola and Magny Cours and make it to the top step before the end of the season. Its great to be up there fighting for podiums again and hopefully if all goes well I can stay with the team and challenge for the title in 2011.

Mutual agreement to part company with Echo CRS Honda
August 30th, 2010
I was grateful for the opportunity to stay in World Superbikes and ride for Honda and Echo CRS this year and I thank Sandro, Echo, Honda and all the team for their effort and support during this tough season.

On 24th August we reached a mutual agreement to dissolve the partnership for the 2010 Superbike World Championship. I am looking looking for opportunities to continue my racing involvement, for this season and the future and hope to announce something new in the near future.

I've been in the Superbike World Championship paddock since 2001, alternating between the World Superbike and World Supersport series. I have 23 World Supersport podiums to my credit, including five race wins, and I was runner-up in the WSS series in 2004 and 2007 so I'm sure I can secure a competitive ride.

I wish Sandro and the Echo CRS Honda team good luck and all the best for the future and again I thank them for the time we have spent together
