Colin Edwards

“Looking forward to getting back to Europe and riding at Brno. Last weekend at Indy we came very close to being the Best CRT and now we have to equal that result or improve it. We are getting closer to the ARTs and we need to keep that gap as narrow as possible.”

Claudio Corti

“After this last GP in America I believe that we can do well at Brno. The goal remains to be in the points from now on this season and I will take every single opportunity. We need to start off very strong to keep the momentum to meet our goals.”

Simone Corsi

“This Sunday we race at Brno, we believe in our potential, the bike is running smoothly and at Indy we have done a very good job. Brno is a track I enjoy; let’s hope that the weather is good and warm. The feeling with the bike is extremely good: we can be in the fight for the podium.”

Alex De Angelis

“Historically speaking Brno is a circuit that I like, it is a very fast track with not many slow corners and that is why I believe it is one of my favorites. We will most likely have to start off the weekend with a completely different setup to the one we used at Indy because there was no grip and at Brno there is a lot.”

Pattia Pasini

“We get to Brno with one goal in mind: do better than we have done up to now. After a very good Friday at Indy, both Saturday and Sunday have been very busy for us, more than usual. We have to understand in what we have made a mistake during the race and try to improve it before this weekend’s race.”

Ricky Cardus

“I am happy to come straight here to Brno: having back-to-back races helps you develop a better feeling with the bike. We left Indianapolis having gathered many times in order it be ready for the Czech Republic and be able to ride as fast as I did in the last few laps at Indy.”
