Well Jorge you can rest and relax and rossi won't be able to get your setting so this is brilliant plan and it will be very fun when rossi rides backwards around without Jorge to follow!Happy holidays Jorge and see you winning soon!!

the fact that they don't share Data means that on RACE WEEKEND Data will not pass directly from Garage to Garage!!!
the Yamaha engineers will get all the data and THEY will pass it to each garage after the race weekend.
Lorenzo is lucky to have such a strong team that will do all the work for him.
when he gets to Qatar all the testing data will be there to look at!!!
Good luck and get well!!!

It's been said on here before by many, many people, but why do the teams allow their riders to participate in sports like MX pre-season?

I've ridden motocross for years and will be racing again this year, albeit as a pretty average ACU Junior (Junior in ability, I'm 27).

Motorbikes are dangerous, and it's bad enough stacking in testing but testing is a necessity. Riding MX is great fun but carries inherent risks.

Remember when Jeremy McGrath broke his foot from landing a huge jump whilst messing about?
Ruined his season!
I just can't imagine Yamaha Japan being thrilled about this...

since Barcelona 2008 lorenzo has had 9 different injuries due to crashing ( these injuries will take a toll sooner or later and confidence also, by the way checkout photos of rossi on holiday in the
carbbean for his 31 birthday (gpone)...where would a future world champ wanna be this time of year? on holiday or in hospital

I don't think Spies will finish in the top 3 this not ahead of Lorenzo. Sorry Terry, but next year perhaps?

It will be an awkward situation if he can't ride in Qatr's test.
Kid, Next off-season, you'll stay at home & play world of warcraft!
