Barrier and Baz ready to confirm

FIM Cup Superstock 1000

Sylvain Barrier, injured at Brno at the end of July, was back in Magny-Cours for the last race. He was always with the leading group and did a very courageous race, rewarded with the seventh position.

Sylvain Barrier: "My knee is OK, but my ankle still hurts as it is a little bit complicated. This new track is not so bad. I kind of like it, with its uphill and downhill sections."

Martial Garcia (team-manager): "Sylvain Barrier is now back in shape and he showed it at Magny-Cours with a good 7th place. We expect him to do well again this weekend."

Superstock 600 European Championship

Loris Baz won the European title at Magny-Cours during the last race. This season, he won 3 races out of 9, at Valencia, Monza and Brands Hatch. He finished second at the Nurburgring, at Brno and at Magny-Cours, and he was also third at Misano, which means he climbed 7 times on the podium in 9 races.

The Superstock 600 race is traditionally on Saturday, but it will be different this weekend at the event will be on Sunday at 1:20 PM, between the Supersport race and the second leg of the Superbikes.

Martial Garcia (team-manager): "After he won the title, Loris Baz will want to confirm here all the hope people have invested in him."
