"It seems a long time since Phillip Island so I'm really looking forward to Imola and being back on track again. The last time I raced in Imola, I ended up on the podium and that's a memory I'd like to repeat. I am happy with the chassis and base set-up we found in Australia, so we'll try and build on that in the first practice session and keep improving. The first race of the year is always a bit difficult, but I feel we came away with a lot of good feedback and information and we will use that to make the Crescent Fixi Suzuki better. I've been training hard recently, doing a lot of cycling and feel in really good shape. Now, all I want is to get back on the bike and start racing again."
