Forma boot up a gear on Phillip Island

Max Neukirchner started the 2009 WSBK season with a second and sixth place on his new GSX-R Suzuki and his
new F1 Forma boots. In race one at Phillip Island Max made a good start and managed to stay with the front group, crossing the line in second after a hard fought race. At the start of race two Neukirchner made contact with another rider, but managed to fight his way through the pack to finish in sixth position. Max is now second in Superbike championship standing.

Two other riders are competing at world level in Forma boots this year. After just one year in world Supersport, David Salom moves up to world Superbike with Team
Pedercini Kawasaki. In Phillip Island David ended race one in twenty first place, and race two in twenty fifth - a good experience for the young Spanish rider in a hugely competitive championship. In Supersport French rider Matthieu Lagrive, four times Endurance world champion, began the season with his new HANNspree Honda Althea team on a CBR 600 RR. Following a poor start he reached the eleventh
position, making some good points for his championship campaign.
