de Puniet ready for home race

Randy de Puniet, the top satellite rider in the 2010 MotoGP championship after two rounds, heads for his home event at Le Mans in France this weekend.

The LCR Honda rider finished sixth and ninth at Qatar and Jerez, to sit sixth in the championship, nine points behind Nicky Hayden (Ducati Marlboro) and five ahead of Colin Edwards (Tech 3 Yamaha).

“Of course, Le Mans is a big event for me and the team,” said Randy. “You always want to do your best in every race, but having so many fans urging you on is an extra boost, so I want to get the best possible result for all the people who support me all year round.

“I think we can have a better race at Le Mans than we did at Jerez. We made some good improvements to the bike during the tests at Jerez, so I want to say a big thank you to my crew for all their hard work.

“I like Le Mans - it's quite stop and go and there's a lot of hard braking into the hairpins, which I enjoy.”
