Jorge Lorenzo wasn’t the only MotoGP rider at the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy, Rizla Suzuki rider Loris Capirossi was also present to lead the Suzuki parade that was part of the Japanese manufacturer celebrations of 50 years of international racing at this year’s TT before taking his first ever lap of the famous 37.73 mile course on a Rizla Suzuki GSX-R1000.
Capirossi said: “This place is incredible. I’ve seen the TV footage before, but nothing prepares you for the TT course. The surface is much bumpier than I imagined and when you see the speeds that these guys run at, it is simply amazing. It’s a fantastic event that you could never replicate anywhere else in the world.”
