MotoGP: Zarco: Austin? Time to dream of victory

He's arriving in the US in very high spirits. His performance at Termas de Rio Hondo has given Johann Zarco yet another confidence boost and now the Frenchman is keen to keep up the momentum. After finishing second in Argentina, the bar continues to be raised, as he now sets his sights on the highest step of the podium.

The Frenchman is already licking his lips in the land of possibility: Why shouldn’t we think about our first victory as well? I want to dream about it and live this dream at the maximum. After the podium in Argentina, I’m still very happy about the feeling I could gain on the bike and I hope to have this great feeling again from the first practice on Friday."

It won't be easy for Zarco, in that Austin is Marc Marquez's stronghold: “This is a very nice track, although it is physically truly tough and I think it’s maybe even one of the most technical circuits of the year, because we have 20 corners and it’s not easy to go really fast."

Still in the Tech3 camp,  Syahrin has had a very positive start to the season, scoring nine points, the same as Dani Pedrosa: “I’m really happy with the results that we’ve done in the first two races and I’m looking forward to the Grand Prix this weekend. I try to do the same or end up even better. Before Austin I prepared myself with some training in the boot camp of Colin Edwards."

The Asian rider is therefore very enthusiastic: “ My physical condition is good, I improved step by step and I’m more than ready for this third round. I can’t wait to meet my team again and I hope I can give my best to them yet again.”
