“Up to now we had only two 24hr races in the season, Le Mans and the Bol d’Or, so we had time to recuperate and to prepare ourselves physically and mentally. This year, with the return of Spa at the start of June, we have just a little over a month so it will be difficult for everybody, as few riders know this track since the last 24hr motorcycle event was held in 2003. Despite that, I think we have an advantage with Xavier Siméon on our side since he is Belgian, and we will definitely have public support. And then he is going to be able to help us plot good  trajectories and the best places to overtake. I am eager to get there as it’s an iconic circuit with a track that favours attackers and where you must be brave as it’s not for the faint-hearted with very fast corners, so I think we’re in for a treat. I also think that there will be a lot of spectators for the return of motorcycle endurance to Belgium and I hope that our French fans will make the journey to support us!”
