Lost day at Aragon

High winds limit Thursday's CRT MotoGP testing at Aragon to just a few laps.
Thursday's opening day of private MotoGP testing at Aragon was all but lost to high winds.

The Power Electronics Aspar team stated that riders Randy de Puniet and Aleix Espargaro didn't even record a lap due to the 50km/h gusts, while PBM's James Ellison and Avintia's Ivan Silva did just a handful of fast laps.

The three Claiming Rule Teams present will hope to make up for the lost time on Friday's final day. That could be their last chance for track action prior to the final official test at Jerez from March 23-25, when they will go head-to-head with the manufacturer bikes.

Please, shut up all of you. It's not your team, your money, your call, your bikes - you're not the rider, or owner and you aren't there. Shut it already

@ mcarrogant, Everything you mentioned is worthless without getting the bike up to speed. Ambient temps effect everything you mentioned. It's cute how you think since you can ride in any weather that it somehow translates into riding a highly modified machine in anger around a racetrack. It's cute how you think you know more than the professionals who actually do this for a living. Maybe they should head over to Iceland, slap some studed ice there's on it and get some testing done.
