John Hopkins may have had experience of most of the top categories of bike racing in his lengthy career, but strange as it might seem the Crescent FIXI Suzuki man has never set foot in the Monza circuit, so the American will get a chance to put that right this weekend. After experiencing some early season ups and downs he now feels the team is firmly on a steep upward slope.
Monza is the venue for a championship round for the 21st time: the first edition was held in 1990 and it saw a double win for Fabrizio Pirovano on a Yamaha. This will also be the 301st World Superbike round, which will reach the 600-race mark next time out at Donington the following weekend.
