Suzuki Support Rider Geoff May Picks up First ’06 Superstock Podium at Miller Motorsports Park

June 18, 2006

BREA, Calif., (June 22, 2006) – American Suzuki Motor Corp. (ASMC) support rider, Team M4 EMGO Suzuki’s Geoff May, captured his first AMA Repsol Superstock podium finish of the 2006 season at the brand-new Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, on Sunday, June 18.

The 25-year-old May has consistently finished in fourth place in AMA Superstock until last weekend at the Miller event. Riding a 2006 Suzuki GSX-R1000 for Team M4 EMGO Suzuki since 2005, May is in fourth-place overall in the AMA Superstock title chase.

“Once again, we showed that we can run up front with the best of the best,” said May, who led the most laps of the 13-lap race. “I can’t be upset about that. I didn’t do anything wrong -- I went out there and was very consistent. I was fast in the beginning and then only dropped off maybe five-tenths a lap late in the race. It was all I could do on this day. While I wanted to win, podiums are always good. I was happy to lead much of the race and show the type of potential we’ve got.”

May and the rest of the Suzuki support teams will next compete in AMA road racing at the combined AMA Superbike Championship/MotoGP event at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, Calif., July 21 - 23.
