Jules Cluzel paid a visit to Fixi Crescent Suzuki’s headquarters in Verwood yesterday to meet his new crew and to try out his new GSX R-1000 bike ahead of testing for the 2013 World Superbike season.
The meeting gave Jules the opportunity to meet Crew Chief, Lez Pearson, as well as the rest of the team that he will rely so much on over the coming year. It didn’t take long for him to try his bike out for size, sizing up the seat position and even asking for a few early alterations! His first chance to hit the track will be in Spain during a testing session in early January, with the first round of the Championship taking place in Phillip Island on Sunday, 24th February 2013. Jules said he couldn’t wait to take the bike for a spin;
‘I’m really looking forward to riding the Suzuki GSX-R1000 and I am very excited about the first test because the bike felt great as soon as I sat on it; now I want to ride it! I’ve met all my new crew and they were really friendly, I’m really looking forward to working with all of them.’
