MotoGP rookie Eugene Laverty faces another tough challenge this weekend as the Northern Irishman tackles the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit for the first time in Argentina.

The Power Electronics Aspar Honda rider narrowly finished outside the points in Austin as he competed at the Circuit of the Americas for the first time and Laverty is preparing to embark on another learning curve this weekend.

"Austin was quite a difficult track to learn but I adapted quickly and that gives me confidence going to Argentina," said the 28-year-old.

"It is a long journey to Termas de Rio Hondo, so I will have time to watch some videos and start learning my way around before we get there.

"Austin was a tough circuit for the characteristics of our bike but Argentina looks more like Phillip Island and I think that could benefit us," he added.

"We will work hard from Friday to adapt and learn it as quickly as possible."

Hey biaggi,

he kicked your ass plenty of times in SBK on the "same" Aprilia. He even had to drop lap times drastically to let you catch up so you could win a race.

You my friend - hang on, you're not my friend - are a knob.
See who gets more agrees / disagrees for their comment. Bet I get more agrees than you do with that daft remark of yours.

Hey Mr Referee: This might sound crazy but I suspect that this was not actually Max Biaggi that wrote this comment.[\blockquote]

I do think I know that. And do you think I am a referee? or that you are rossi?, or that professorX is a professor? Almost everyone on this site uses a 'nick name" & if you prefer to call yourself rossi, you too might get a serve form the rossi haters. Yes, it did sound crazy. Do you really thnk Max Biaggi would lower himself to blog about other riders. Get a grip dude!
