After a trying experience in the two rounds of racing at the season-opening MotoAmerica event, GEICO Suzuki Superbike rider Chris Ulrich is ready to try again and rebound during rounds three and four at Road Atlanta, April 17-19.

“It was a bit rough going last week,” Ulrich said. “I do feel like we gained a lot of useful knowledge though that we can apply. It has been a short turnaround for us with having two races back to back, but the guys definitely worked hard to get it done just like they did in the off-season. We had a short turnaround then as well with the change of manufacturers. It’s not the best situation, but we’ve gotten it done so far.”

With rain predicted for the second race in a row, Ulrich feels a bit more confident this time of what to expect on his GEICO Suzuki GSX-R1000 under wet racing conditions. However, no matter what the weather conditions end up being, he hopes the results from this weekend better reflect what his team is really capable of.

“It looks like we’re going to be dealing with weather again this weekend,” Ulrich said, “but at least we had a bit of time on the bike last week under wet conditions. Other than that, hopefully we have the issues we faced in the last race figured out and can finally get the results we’re hoping for. We’ve all worked hard. Now we just need the finishes to reflect that.”

Qualifying for the Superbike class will take place at 2:10 p.m. ET, Saturday, followed by the first of two 15-lap races at 11:20 p.m. The weekend’s racing action will conclude Sunday with the final Superbike race at 3:20 p.m.
