Encouraging couple of days for Cal.

Does Rossi have any get-out clauses in his contract? He's not going to be a happy boy going into the off-season knowing that he's got no hope of even competing for the 2012 crown.

"jimmyjimmy this test was about the transition to the new bikes more than anything. "

My 'assessment' of the tests is just a bit of fun. Don't take it too seriously.

Don't be too surprised at Cal's pace. This is not only the bike but the tyres he's been waiting for. Yamaha have known ever since the Estoril test that he was going to get on much better with the new 2012 Bridgestone front, which suits his riding style much more than this year's has. He was 4th quickest back in Estoril, only .6 from Stoner, and now he has the new tyres again he's back up there. With the new Bridgestones and the factory spec bike, he's set to have a much stronger year in 2012.

Think Jimmy's assesment is pretty much on the money. You have to recall Rossi at this time last year - and I'm a Rossi supporter. It shouldn't be " test bike..yadda yadda..prototype..blah blah...new frame...excuse excuse. Ducati need to seriously pull their finger out...there is a mile to catch up...and it's not as if Hondamaha are just going to sit still.

And as for the Criminal Records Teams.....we return to the prospect of back markers being lapped on a regular basis.

Finally - come on Suzuki - sort your ****e out - RDP & Hopper - 1000cc. Play with the grownups FFS.

I suspect that if Lorenzo was present then Casey may have pushed that little bit harder to finish on top, I think he knows that when push comes to shove that he has the wood on Padrosa 9 times out of 10, Just a thought anyway!
