Team Joe Rocket Suzuki’s Shawn Giles has been a mainstay in Australian Superbike Championship racing for well over ten years, picking up three championships along the way and cementing himself in the record books as one of our most successful domestic riders ever.

Still going strong and in the hunt for the 2009 title, MotoOnline.com.au caught up with Giles for a quick audio interview just one week out from Queensland Raceway’s double-header round, where Giles will revisit the circuit that took him out of contention for last year’s title.

Almost at 100 percent fitness again following his devastating fall last year, the Ipswich based circuit has been a successful venue for the powerful GSX-R1000 in the past, and it might just be the last round that we see TJRS in action with the 2008 model GSX-Rs before they hit the track with the K9s.

We talk about all that and more, so click on the link and download it to hear Giles’ expectations for the round, for the rest of the season, and more.
