Good to see Nicky finding some pace. I wouldn't bet money on it but another rider in the top won't hurt. At the very least the field looks a lot stronger than the last couple of years. Plenty of decent contenders in the top 10.

Yes Rossi is showing the rest of the field that he still lays good eggs!! Pity we couldn't see how Jorge would of reacted to Vale's times. Impressive results from Nicky as well, I really hope he can keep the momentum going and mix it with the Aliens. I also hope Vale can sustain this performance when he gets to Qatar testing cos CS always prevails there. If Vale can get the bike working how he wants it to work there, what a great start to this season it would be, Vale and Casey at it from round 1!!! Great start Vale :) BRING ON THE SEASON!!

Is the Japanese test bike the same bike that Spies rode in Valencia at the end of 2009? If so, was that Rossi getting an indicator of the level of bike performance, in relation to his M1, and ultimately a better understanding of what Spies is capable of? Know your opposition...

Deja vue 2007. Edwards and him was flying in the pre-season test that year, with Edwards even claiming that the Yamaha was greatest bike available. The Yamaha riders even had superb qualifying in the early stages that year. And the rest as they say is history.....
Now they're at it again. Looks to me like he's peaked now, and a few races into the championship he'll be burnt out. It'll be good to see a return of 2006 and 2007.

Great Sportsmanship Issor?

MotoGP fans actually want and need a close run championship with no mechanical break downs or tyre issues for any teams.

Then we have pure 100% racing and competition.

I really hope these times are an indication of how this year will pan out. More Rossi V Stoner, and while i'm not a big Hayden fan, I would love to see Hayden on the top step at least once on the duke. Same for Colin Edwards, I think at least one win before he retires is just reward for all his efforts, consistently fast and two superbike titles don't mean nothing.
