Ducati 2010 team launch kicks off

Published: 12 January 2010

Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden have kicked off Ducati’s spectacular 2010 MotoGP team launch at the annual pre-season event in the Italian ski resort of Madonna di Campiglio.

The event officially gets underway today (Tuesday), but before proceedings started with various media engagements, Aussie Stoner took to the slopes to show off his skiing prowess.

The 2007 world champion looked relaxed as he bids to end Yamaha and Valentino Rossi’s recent domination of the premier class world championship.

Stoner and Hayden begin their 2010 preparations when pre-season testing kicks off at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia on February 4.
