Loris Baz as the leader

After his victory in Monza in the Superstock 600 race, Loris Baz (15) arrives to the Nurburgring with a 19 points lead over Italian Daniele Beretta and 20 over British Dan Linfoot. In the Superstock 1000 class, Sylvain Barrier should have now better results after he was operated of arm pumps.

Winner of the first race of the season in Valencia and again in Monza, Baz had a good start this year, but it's far from being finished, as there is a total of 10 races. Loris participated two weeks ago to the practice of the German Supersport Championship event. But he did not take part in the actual race itself; his adviser Adrien Morillas thinking it was too risky. Some of the Superstock 600 European Championship riders did race however, like Patrick Vostarek (4th overall) and Michael Sembera.

After the last race in Monza, doctor Simmonet (who took care before of riders like Jean-Michel Bayle, Sebastien Gimbert and Shinichi Nakatomi) operated Sylvain Barrier for an arm pump problem. He could do some practice a few days ago.

Martial Garcia (team-manager): "Loris Baz has a comfortable advantage of 19 points. He should be able to confirm all the good things that we think about him. He did a lot of testing lately. Sylvain Barrier should have better results after being operated. He did some testing in Magny-Cours to get back in shape. We hope everything will go well."
