Ducati to test new aluminium frame in Valencia

Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden are expected to give a public debut to Ducati’s new conventional twin spar aluminium frame during the traditional post race test in Valencia next week. The factory Ducati pairing have both tested the new frame in separate sessions at the Jerez circuit recently as Bologna factory engineers desperately seek to improve front-end feeling with the Desmosedici...

Milkybars...

"4 years and counting is enough to realize it's a waste of time."

Ah, so he didn't win on it in 2007 (or come 2nd in 2008)... ? :huh:

 

"Milky boy had 4 years and each year he moved farther and farther from the wins he had in 2007."

 

He actually got the CF Ducati back to within one race win of 2nd in 2010... that's a 2nd that Honda would have had to be happy with in the 800 era if it hadn't been for Stoner... but you say the Ducati was a waste of time & that the Honda is probably the best bike... something wrong there...

:blink:

why can't  people just STFU abou stoner and ducati.

i don't see him eager to get back on that bike in a hurry.

The truth is, this year is a major blemish in rossi's record,but some people are so deluded, that they think he wouldn't be competitive on a better bike.

there's an obvious trend/correlation of top riders, e.g melandri,rossi,hayden,capirex, gibernau etc, jumping on (A) ducati and looking pathetic, doesn't that tell anyone anything?????????

im sick of hearing about CF this CF that, its a fucking shit design,no one likes/liked it, not even stoner, i wouldnt be suprised if he never rides a ducati again....

stoner had no choice but to make the ducati work, who else was going to hand him a factory contact after his show on the  990's?? seriously.

Sorry Nostro..

But your "Rossi veto'ed it" statement is unfounded and just based on hear say.. If you do a little research you will find Furasawa explaining that the reason Yamaha ended up turning Stoner down was because his demands were too high.. He also stated that he never heard Rossi say that he did not want Stoner as a team mate...

Please post up your sources for your "Rossi veto'ed it" statement.. Aquarius and your mates down the pub don't count...

"why can't people just STFU abou stoner and ducati."

I agree... people should stop saying how crap it was, how badly Stoner performed on it & how it was continually getting worse... even JB & Rossi thought it was on the up so why can't people leave him alone?

Nostro

At one point i used to respect your point of view and consider  the things you said, bit lately you have turned into COMPLETE prick who just wants to start the mud slinging.

You may well have techinical knowledge but stop being a twat and talking down to us who have every bit as much knowledge over the feel and feedback a rider gets when on a bike.

how could you said ducati is a bad bike??? if stoner said it's not competitif to win WC, well maybe i believe it. but it's not a bad bike. stoner proves it. it's rossi whose made it getting worse! look hayden! did he fell??? always in the middle of race when he in front of rossi, he got pull back. that's sucks. you figure it out why.
