Suzuki Alstare signs 2010 SBK riders

Just two days after the last round of this year’s Superbike World Championship (WSBK) in Portimao, Suzuki Alstare begin their preparation for 2010 with two days of tests at their Portuguese circuit. New signings Sylvain Guintoli and Leon Haslam will have two days with the team before the winter tests later this year.

Suzuki Alstare rented the circuit for themselves, but are kindly making it available for the rest of the Superbike and Superbike teams and a good turnout of the top teams is expected. Many of the teams will have their new 2010 riders present and it will be a superb opportunity for all to evaluate the new riders on this year’s bikes, before the long, hard work over winter begins.
