Did you know?.....

While we post Rossi is blasting his rivals into the weeds!! I'm watching the live timing from the IRTA test in Barcelona & #46 is over half a second ahead & still the only rider to dip under the 1.43 mark. Also of interest is the quickest Honda is NH down in 7th 1.5 secs behind ! Top 6 at this moment
1 Rossi 1.42.477
2 Checa 1.43.142
3 Nakano 1.43.245
4 Edwards 1.43.388
5 De Puniet 1.43.847
6 Hopkins 1.43.970
I'll post up the full times later

Has anyone seen my marbles ?

Look at Checa go on the Dunlops!!! Who says they can't build a tire? Already faster than Bridgestone, which has been competing in MotoGP for a couple seasons. Go Dunlop!

Seems like Honda is really struggling at this track. Like you said, Nicky is best Honda at the moment, with Melandri quite a bit off the pace and Pedrosa too. Interesting to see Tamada and Roberts doing better that those two.

NH has been testing the NEW RCV at all the preseason tests so its no surprise he's laggin behind, hell it might even be an 800cc version

I read an interview with NH a couple of days ago & he basically said that the 06 RC211 is harder to ride than the 05 version!

impressing stuff, can't help but feeling sorry for Ellison who is a few seconds of the pace on the same bike/tyres. Had like to see him do well on a good bike.

Looks like Rossi really wants the Beemer. Very cool to see Nakano with the 3rd fastest time for today. Way to represent for Big K, Shinya!
