As MotoGP returns to Czechoslovakia after a three-week break, Honda's Sete Gibernau can't wait to resume his challenge for the top championship title.

Both Gibernau and team mate Colin Edwards are looking forward to racing at the Czech circuit in Brno with its frequent altitude changes and many corners. The track's characteristics make the perfect bike setup imperative.

Thanks to the double podium finish at Donington Park, Gibernau is back is second position of the riders championship while Edwards moved up to fourth.

Sete arrives at Brno ready to fight for the title: "We are going to fight for this World Championship", he said, even though he has already crashed out of two races this season. Twenty-two points behind championship leader Valentino Rossi, Gibernau plans to increase the pressure at one of his favourite tracks.

"Brno is a track I love a lot, one of my favourites of the Championship. This is thanks to both the position the track is situated in and the technical difficulties of it. For about three-quarters of the track, the circuit tends to be in descent, but for the last quarter the ascent is very pronounced with two chicanes - a very slow one and another very fast one - which brings you to the straightaway. I always like racing in Brno."

Two-time world superbike champion Edwards has had a difficult start to the season and after finding the right balance of his bike at the British GP, he hopes for another successful race weekend.

"I really like the track; it has great character," Edwards said. "The best section is about halfway around the track through the little stadium area. It's a nice flowing track but you have to use the correct line. At Brno, bike setting and the correct line are very important. I also like the atmosphere at Brno, it's great, there are so many spectators."
