Published: 16 December 2003

This if the first exclusive picture of Garry McCoy in action on his Ducati 999 World Superbike.

The Aussie is at Valencia today and tomorrow to test the V-twin, which he's riding after a disastrous year on Kawasaki's MotoGP ZX-RR. He has replaced Frenchman Regis Laconi on the NCR bike for the coming season.

But his progress is being hampered by a wrist injury, which he sustained in a supermoto crash two weeks ago.

He said: "It's tough to hang on and wind the throttle back, but I needed to get out on the Ducati as soon as I could."
