Sylvain Guintoli says he will be taking 'all risks' in an effort to keep himself involved in the World Superbike Championship title hunt with just two rounds of the season remaining.

The Frenchman heads to his home round at Magny-Cours facing a 31 point deficit to Tom Sykes with a maximum of 100 points available over this and the final Qatar night race event.

Having been beaten to victory - and crucial points - by team-mate Marco Melandri at Jerez, Guintoli has vowed to go on the attack in France in an effort to keep the pressure on Sykes.
