just goes to show how good Cal is, riding an inferior machine (compared to the factory yamaha's) and still getting great results. looks like a good year ahead for fans :-)

Rossi

Rossi is one clever bloke ,testing is testing, no prizes for being fastest, only gives your rivals a chance to see what your bike can do.but when it comes to racing Rossi will more than surprise , remember what he said in the interview after the 1st test, 5laps to get back up to speed, with the Yamaha,

Oooh, "rumours" of a new Speed Triple!

You'd best tell Triumph that they're just rumours, they've been feeding photos to the press for months. ;)

By the way, why no website mention of the Scottish MCN Carole Nash Santander Birds Eye Jimmy Saville Memorial Bike Show?  You were pimping the one in That London for months, as I recall.

Even when Rossi was last on the Yamaha he would often not be the fastest in qualifying or testing and then bring it together for the race.

Being fast around the track during qualifying and testing is one thing and we all know that getting front and staying in front during the race is something else.

The Ducati was shit and we all know it and I don't think Rossi will have forgotten how to race but he is getting on now, can't wait for the season to properly start :)

Sheene Fan...

"why is he done when he is just 0.070s behind Lorenzo"

Erm... that's 0.780 behind Lorenzo on the same bike... I'm not saying he's done but get your facts straight. At the same test last year on the Duc he was only 0.673 behind JL & we know how that panned out.

Chriswren - "The Ducati was shit and we all know it and I don't think Rossi will have forgotten how to race but he is getting on now, can't wait for the season to properly start :)"

Aye... but unfortunately he's only running under 0.3 of a second closer to the front on a factory Yam... & worse when compared to his team mate. In other words if JL had been on the Ducati & if JL is 0.78 faster than Rossi, he could have had that Ducati 3rd fastest in this test last year! Don't worry, it's a lot of ifs... roll on the racing!
