Randy / Edwards / Hayden / Rossi / should all move over for the new young generation of exciting riders, like the lowe twins , Pol , Luthi , Redding the list goes on and on..!

Randy is a great choice to test the new Suzuki because you can then compare the new bike to the current CRT's.

The time he needs to beat is 1'47.581, this was his qualifying time last year on the Aspar. If Suzuki are struggling to beat this then they will need to step up their game. They need to get into the 1'45 range to hope to compete with the factory bikes.

Before Suzuki pull out last time RDP tested the bike and was fast, proper fast. Enough to actually make them consider staying. For this reason they have probably asked him back.

Shame for RDP is that this year he is really being shown the way by his teammate.

Also Suzuki need a way onto the grid, what better team than the ASPAR set-up, if they can make it work with Brivo and Aspar in the same pit garage.

Cant wait to see Suzi's back. We need more competitive bike to the show. I'm sure Suzuki had more calculation than us to choose RDP as the test rider. He ride Honda Sat & CRT, so he have some interesting data. he proved us how he force bike over the limit (crashed?). Suzuki need to measure the bike limit.
