Alex Lowes says he is looking forward to getting back to a circuit he knows after enduring a troubled World Superbike round at Motorland Aragon on a weekend where Suzuki struggled all round.

Eager to bounce back from a disappointing Phillip Island opener, where Lowes couldn't turn his impressive practice pace into a strong race finish after picking up a broken ankle in an accident, the learning curve of the Aragon circuit would prove tough for the 2013 BSB champion.

Battling in the chasing pack for much of the first race, Lowes would cross the line in tenth position for his first top ten finish in WSBK before crashing on the second lap of the second race.

Admitting to 'struggling' to get the Voltcom Crescent Suzuki GSX-R1000 to work all weekend, Lowes is confident of a better showing next time out at Assen, a circuit he knows well from his days in BSB.

"I have struggled with the bike and the track all weekend. The first eight laps of the morning race I felt pretty good but then the tyre dropped off quite a lot so I just made sure I finished. We made some improvements to the bike in the break and I actually felt better in the first lap of the second race, until the crash, and the rest is history.

"I scored three points in my first race, I scored five here so at least I'm getting better! We go to a track that I know next, which is really good for me. Obviously it's going to be easier for me to improve when I know the track and hopefully it will be easier to get the bike set up as well, so I'm looking forward to it."
