The fourth round of the MotoGP world championship will take place this weekend in Le Mans, the home circuit of REV’IT! rider Randy de Puniet.
The narrow circuit is characterized by unusual curves, which force the riders to brake and accelerate hard. The Pramac Racing Team will try to continue the encouraging progress it experienced in Portugal. Randy De Puniet is eager to do well in front of his home crowd, at a track where he has earned four podiums. It all depends on his knee which, following the removal of a screw a few days after the Jerez race, certainly didn’t help him during the round at Estoril 2 weeks ago.
“I must say that I was very worried about my knee after the race in Estoril. When I got off the bike, I immediately feared the worst. I thought that the ligaments might have been injured during the race, but fortunately the doctor visits I’ve made have excluded that possibility. We have had a few days off, so my knee had some time to rest.. The problem had to do with the blood circulation around the scar after the screw was removed. I’m calm and happy to race in front of my fans, on home ground. I wasn’t able to test the bike like everyone else did at Estoril, but I hope to have the same approach with the bike as we had in Qatar and at Jerez.”

Randy is ready. Are you?
