MotoGP » MotoGP Germany - Free Practice (2) Results

clarkjw:. Casey was the only one who didn't use TC.
He might have had it turned it down to a low level at certain circuits but there is no way he rode without TC. To be fair to him, I don't think anyone could ride the RCV without electronic aids. Dani tried a couple of years ago after Marc knocked the sensor off his bike, I think he lasted about 3 seconds.
Aoyama's crew chief said at his first test for Honda (his rookie year of motogp, not frist as the test rider), that he rode it at first with no electronics, to improve his basic understanding of the bike, so it is not impossible.

MotoGP » MotoGP Germany - Free Practice (2) Results

I agree with MotoMarc without electronics most of the double world champions would spend more time in the gravel than on tarmac. I still remember a certain rider who won 500cc title(runner-up in his rookie year) on a satellite Honda riding without all those electronics.
HRC where trying TC in the Doohan days, I doubt that Rossi had none. He still did a great job on what was still a beast thou.

MotoGP » Official: Marco Melandri splits from Aprilia

RealDrWho: Since Mugello the lawyers of Aprilia and Melandri were in talks for an exit on mutual agreement. What surprises me the most is that it needed such a long talk to get an agreement. Marco's exit was already planned after the Barcelona GP and he would be substituted at Assen. It have taken a while, but it's good for Marco and for Aprilia. Looking forward seeing "Macio" back in WSBK on hopefully a competitive Yamaha.
From what I have read, it all came down to money, with Melandri wanting all 1 million euros of his contract to leave.
