Cluzel Meets His Crew At Fixi Crescent Suzuki HQ

FIXI Crescent Suzuki new signing Jules Cluzel made his first visit to the team's headquarters in Verwood, England today to get his first chance to meet his crew and try out for size the Suzuki GSX-R1000 that he will be racing in next year's Superbike World Championship.

Cluzel immediately felt at home in the fresh surroundings as he was introduced to his new Crew Chief Lez Pearson and the rest of the team that he will be working with next season. The 24-year-old Frenchman was eager to swing his leg over the new race bike and immediately said that he couldn't wait to get it out on the track, because it felt right straight away.

The FIXI Crescent Suzuki GSX-R1000 was emblazoned with Cluzel's racing number 16 when he first set eyes on the bike and he quickly adapted himself to the seating position, even asking the crew to make adjustments, and suggested some future alterations to enable him to start the first test with a bike that fits him.

Cluzel will get his first chance to ride the Yoshimura-powered FIXI Crescent Suzuki at a test in Spain early next year, before he begins his competitive career with his new team at Phillip Island in Australia on Sunday February 24th. Before that though he will meet up with new team-mate Leon Camier tomorrow, when the pair will be attending an official function on behalf of the team's title sponsor FIXI.

Jules Cluzel:

"I am really happy to have come here to England and meet the team and see my new bike. I am really looking forward to riding the Suzuki GSX-R and I am very excited about the first run in the first test because the bike felt great as soon as I sat on it; now I want to ride it! This is a new challenge and I am really happy to be involved in this with FIXI Crescent Suzuki. I have met all my new crew and they were really friendly and I'm really looking forward to working with all of them."

Lez Pearson - Crew Chief:

"I have met Jules briefly before, but it was good to meet him properly today and get his first impressions of the bike. I became a fan of his last season and saw that he was a real talent and I'm sure that is something we can help him grow at FIXI Crescent Suzuki. He's an intelligent and enthusiastic guy and the whole crew are excited about seeing what he can do on the bike. He's already given us some ideas about how he would like the bike setting up for him, so we already have an idea of what he wants. We are all really looking forward to working with him and the first test can't come soon enough."
