Edwards, Spies like Aragon

Monster Yamaha Tech 3 riders Colin Edwards and Ben Spies, like most of the MotoGP field, were impressed by the new Aragon circuit, which held its first official grand prix track action on Friday.

“I love the circuit," said Edwards, who was ninth fastest after one dry and then one wet free practice session. "I'm not sure what I expected but I hoped somebody would have designed something good and that's obviously what happened.

"It is a lot of fun to ride and there are a few points that remind me of other tracks. I guess it feels quite similar to Sepang but there's the reverse Corkscrew, which is pretty cool. Some of the fast corners are a bit like Mugello and overall it is a cool track. It's not really demanding and it really flows and there are no real slow parts."

Team-mate Spies, who was tenth in the dry and eighth in the wet, enjoyed it so much he didn't want to stop.

“I really like the track. It has got some good elevation changes that make it pretty cool and the first couple of corners remind me of Istanbul Park on the video game," said the Texan rookie.

"You know it is a fun track when you want to stay out and ride and that's how I felt today."

That's probably poor old Col's problem! His short attention span has him riding around like he's a bloody tourist, enjoying the 'interesting topography' and the 'natural rolling landscape' and the 'calming twitter' of the lovely lark sparrows as they nestle in for the harsh elements of the coming winter! Oh, **** me! Is it any wonder this bloke has done NOTHING in motoGP?

It looks awesome on the TV. They should make it a permanent fixture on the calendar. Dump the yawn-fest Valencia if you have to--though I doubt that would happen. Speaking of which... can anyone tell me on ONE good race that's every happened at Valencia? I can't think of one.
