Elias searching for balance

"I was very excited to be back on a MotoGP machine" - Toni Elias.
Newly crowned Moto2 world champion Toni Elias was left 17th and last on his return to MotoGP, during testing at Valencia this week for the LCR Honda team.

“I was very excited to be back on a MotoGP machine. I missed the power and the sound of this bike, but I have decided to take my time to adapt to the new machine and the new Team," said the Spaniard.

"This RCV is different and I need more track time to find the right feeling.

“I feel a bit tired because this bike is physically demanding compared to the Moto2.

"In the winter break I will train more to reinforce my muscles. However today I felt more easy-going but I am still looking for the best base set up for me.

"My main issue was the bike balance so I could not push as I would like but I am not worried about it. I have got a lot of experience on these bikes and I know it takes time to adapt.

"The best way to improve my feeling on this machine is to work hard together with the Team”.

I dont understand why people keep hitting on Toni during his last stint in MotoGP. He finished 7th, so there were at least 10 crap riders who finished behind him, and probably stayed in MotoGP. I can think of a few. The Honda at the beginning of the season as always was crap, and Toni like Dani took a while to get used to it. Toni longer than Dani because he never got the real support and new parts that dani got. So give the guy a break. Lets see what he can do.

Toni requires a more precise setup than most. He can't just hop on and go fast. That said, when he finds something that works for him, he's a fast MF.
