From a press release issued by Eric Bostrom's manager:<BR><BR>Eric Bostrom. Germany.<BR><BR>August 28, 2002 – Oschersleben, Germany. This weekend, Eric Bostrom will get another chance to compete against the World Superbike regulars at the Oschersleben track in Germany. After a strong finish in AMA Superbike, winning the final race of the year at VIR and finishing a strong 2nd in the Superbike Championship, Eric is ready to ride. This despite the boating accident that he and his brother, Ben, and friend, Kat, suffered through a little over a week ago in Sardinia.<BR><BR>And although he has never been to Oschersleben, Eric is feeling confident. "I'm pretty pumped. From the track map, it looks like a really fun track. I'm a little bummed because my ribs are still sore from our boat accident, but I should be strong for the race. I'm looking forward to trying to get myself and the Kawasaki back in the lead of a World Superbike race (like at Laguna), but for more than three or four laps this time!" <BR><BR>Eric will ride the Kawasaki Superbike prepared by his US-based AMA Superbike crew and shipped to Germany especially for this race. His mechanics, crew chief, and team manager will also be in attendance.<BR>
