Where is Sam Lowes? was he not taking part in these tests?

Nor, it appears , is the current moto3 champ, Joan Mir.

Sam's team "Swiss Innovative Investors" did not participate, maybe because they wanted to test separatedly? same story for Mir's team: EG 0,0 Mark VDS both Johan Mir and Alex Marquez missed the Valencia test. I guess we are going to see them in Jerez on February 12-14/Feb, and 06-08/Mar? anyone knows if they can only participate to two sessions and not three?

Matty Pasini proving as always you can't keep an old dog down, makes me smile.

Be interested to know if there are any issues for Domi or whether it's just a case of getting used to the KTM chassis

No VR46 team?


Might have been interesting if they could have gotten Pasini to take Folger's Tech3 spot if contracts and sponsers and all of that would have allowed.

They're saying it's Marc VDS vs KTM but I think Pasini could throw a few spanners in the works this season. 

yep. too many significant riders missing for this to allo for any useful analysis.
