Schumacher scores maiden motorcycle victory

In the English press
Quote:
Former F1 World Champion beats the pack - on a Triumph 675!
FORMER Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher followed up the third-place on his motorcycle race debut in Hungary last week with first place in Barcelona - riding a Triumph Daytona 675.
Schumacher won the 14-lap race in Spain last weekend, fuelling rumours that he's preparing to compete at a higher level - possibly on a factory-prepared bike next season.

2007 MotoGP world champion Australian Casey Stoner was impressed with the former multiple-F1 champion's testing times when Schumacher rode Stoner's 800cc Ducati Desmosedici GP7 last November.

That's pretty awesome. Do you know what series he was racing in? It's not European Supersport is it? If so, that's be hella impressive.

You could tell he knows how to ride when he took Stoner's GP bike within 5 seconds of Stoners best time last year at a test!

Wow, I need to see these races, what series is it? An F1 to GP crossover would do so much to help the sport, imagine if some sponsors were to follow...

wow,
I'd wager we'll see him in a few more races. His competitive spirit wont rest til he's atop the podium box.

sounds like he's in denial to me,
Quote:
Despite scoring an impressive fourth in his first official race, the super-cool German has rejected rumours he's embarking on a two-wheeled career SEVEN-TIME Formula One champion Michael Schumacher finished fourth in his first competitive motorbike race at the weekend - and then dismissed the growing rumours of a full-time motorcycle racing career. The 39-year-old, who was third in qualifying, recorded the second-fastest lap in 10-lap KTM Trophy race at Misano, Italy. He was blocked in at the first corner and slipped down to 14th place but battled back through the field to finish just outside the podium places.

Schumacher rode a 990cc KTM Super Duke in the event and said: “At the start I was a bit too careful, I didn't begin well and I was well behind. Then I found my way and started overtaking and it was great. “But there will be no second career on motorbikes, this is just a hobby.” The former Ferrari ace set a fastest lap of 1min 49.612secs in the process, which was only beaten by race winner Andrea Padovani, who posted a best of 1min 49.508secs.

He added: “This is not the start of a second career. Even if I do a race from time to time that does not mean anything else than I do it because I want to enjoy myself. I just enjoy motorbiking. I do not have any ambitions to step into any kind of racing series.”
