Melissa Paris to test Tech 3 Yamaha MotoGP bike in Valencia

Melissa Paris, the racer wife of double American Superbike champion Josh Hayes, will test Yamaha’s YZR-M1 800cc MotoGP bike in Valencia tomorrow (Tuesday). Paris was due to test Bradley Smith’s Tech 3 Racing Moto2 bike today (Monday) but when Hayes was drafted in as injury cover for Colin Edwards during last weekend’s Valencia Grand Prix, she was offered the opportunity to...

Hmm, she is definately no Elena Myers, or Jenny Tinmouth for that matter. But she is married to Josh Hayes I suppose. I would be surprised if she keeps the heat in the tyres.

you sexist bunch!!!!!!!! personally i think she will spend most of the day evaluating the outgoing YZR, taking the good points and dismissing the bad points, in turn transferring these into valuable data that can be applied to the 1000cc YZR and in turn making it into a proven race winner for the likes of Spies, Lorenzo, Crutchlow etc. If any of these win the championship next year they can put it down to the experience of this girl.

Actually, thats a load of bollocks. Mel, put yer knickers on and make us all a nice brew (oh, and wash up afterwards)

What earthly good.  Well that's up to them to decide.  I'd hazzard a guess that Melissa riding that bike would make a lot more sense than 99% of the posters in here riding it - and I'll throw myself in with the 99%....  Not that I'm calling the rest 1 percenters.

On a personal note ... it's not a racebike but my girlfriends bike is a lot sportier than mine and she loves it - as do I when she's not going for a ride and I am - much earthly good there.

She's just riding

the 800cc bike, so I don't see the problem - and no problem even if they let her try the 1000. They're not putting her on it for development purposes - it's just a treat for her and Josh to take part.


She's probably faster then everyone in this thread, and not just the ones that put her down as being "just a woman" ;)
