Loris Capirossi. Rizla Suzuki GSVR 800
First practise, Saturday at the Melbourne hairpin. We were treated to a good look at this and the other bikes in the pits on Sunday minus all the "pretty blue bits". Loris was crouched next to his bike in deep discussion with his engineers. We were not allowed to know what was being discussed!
Sadly neither Loris or Chris excelled in the greasy conditions on race day.
