WSBK: Roger Lee Hayden Previews Monza

WSBK Report

Only one week after the Monza CIV (Italian Championship) races, American Roger Lee Hayden and Team Pedercini are now back in the historical Italian circuit to compete in the World Superbike and in the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup.

After the good results achieved in the Italian Championship, the Pedercini team are eager to race at this very fast circuit, where they hope to be able to gather the fruits of their first races’ hard work.

For Roger Lee, the sole American in the World SBK motorcycle racing series for 2010, Monza represents a further major challenge in his rookie WSB season.Hayden has yet to earn a single point.

Roger Lee Hayden says: "This will be my first time at the Monza circuit. I have never raced on the track before so I will have to familiarize with this new circuit starting from Friday’s free practices. I’m eager to ride and get to know this historical circuit."

"After the first four races of my first Superbike season I’m more confident with my bike’s set-up and in Monza I want to enter the Superpole because I would like to achieve good results for my team and for all my sponsors".

For Hayden’s Italian teammate, things are not much better as he has earned only one point this year.

Matteo Baiocco says: "I like Monza, it’s one of my favorite circuits also thanks to the affection shown by my Italian supporters. I had one week to rest and I’m fully fit and ready for this fifth round of the World Superbike. I know that I have to work hard during practices, to be able to start in good position on Sunday races and I will try to get as many points as possible".
