I don't see why Byrne should get spoken about in the same breath as a 2011 factory ride?

He's 0.3 slower than Checa, and 0.1 slower than Nori.

Now testing doesn't mean an awful lot (ask Suzuki about Moto GP) but even if it did, Checa would be favourite for a Factory bike over Byrne who's lived on Ducati's for the last few years.

If anything Byrne should be 0.3 ahead of Checa at this point, not behind.

Carlos has always been fast, on all sorts of bikes. No surprise to me at all. The question is how quick will he be over the season. When he's on it he's quick but over the season he's mid pack.

Remember that Checa has probably done more laps round Valencia than anyone else in WSBK, it's no surprise he was fastest. Also remember that Shakey was the fastest Ducati at Portimao. I'm pretty sure that there wont be much between Shakey and Carlos come the end of the season.
