From what I have been reading gearing is going to play a big part.

KTMKen - I don't have access to the speed data here at work. Was Spies top of the charts? How does that compare to everyone else?

I am curious as to how each rider is approaching the new track. Starting tire choices, fuel loads etc. It would be nice to know thier methodology.

fan - I think KTM Ken was trying to point out that Spies bike is slow but it is difficult to say what is the bike and what is the rider. Spies 300 vs Lorenzo 307 vs Edwards 301 . Hayden 300 vs Stoner 307. Simoncelli 299 vs Melandri 308.
I'm not sure it is easy to draw many conclusions from trap speeds. Dani and Dovi were 310 and 309.
Dani and Casey have always been experts at getting on the gas but their bikes get all the credit for high trap speeds and they get criticised for being weak on the brakes :? :? :?

Anyone else notice that the tech 3 Yamahas are running a different exhaust pipe (Mugello too). Think it is a Leo Vince, which would make sense with 2 yanks in the team.

Anyway I think Spies is doing ok, the bike is still quite new to him. Also he went over 1 sec quicker that Edwards

wow

No Spies is 13 or 14, Deni is first with 310.8, Dovi 309.5 Km/h etc...

"Think it is a Leo Vince, which would make sense with 2 yanks in the team."

What? You lost me. Leo Vince is an Italian company.

Anyway, it was announce before Mugello that they sign on as a team sponsor and partner.
