Lowes eyeing first WSS win at Misano

Following the frustrations of Donington Park, Assen and Monza, Sam Lowes is determined to start challenging for World Supersport wins again at Misano.
Sam Lowes is setting his sights firmly on scoring a maiden World Supersport Championship victory at Misano having made a full recovery from his collarbone injury.

The Parkalgar Honda rider has taken advantage of the extended break between WSS rounds to allow the cracked collarbone to heal, the youngster hoping to build on the fifth place he managed last time out at Monza.

Indeed, while his impressive pace hasn't yet translated to anything more than a single podium finish, Lowes insists he has learnt a lot from the opening four rounds of the season.

"I am back to full fitness and cannot wait to get racing again, it seems a long time since Monza last month," he said.

"I have learnt a lot in the first four races and want to use that to challenge for the win at Misano. The Parkalgar Honda is good enough and so am I, so it is full gas, I will be on it this weekend."

Well... he won the british supersport title, and shows a grrat will to do well in the races, as he showed at Phillip Island with a couple of gutsy mooves. I don´t know, maybe they have contracted the wrong twin... as Alex lowes is showing to be more mature, although the domestic scene and the world stage have a few diferences, I guess... Anyway, unless honda bring in some new parts to help improve the performance of their bikes, or this year you can almost say 'bye bye yamahas, see ya at the parc ferme'. thats how fast they (the r6's are).
