Check out Espargaro on the CRT Aprilla! He's on a CRT right? He's on par with the B team Ducatis. Did he miss a corner? He's also postiong times near the test riders for Yamaha!
Aprilla's showing @ Sepang and at WSBK Philip Island is really impressive.
I'm sad to say this, but I think this will be Ben Spies last year in MotoGP. Either he's still hurt or the Ducati is just that bad! Hopefully I'm wrong, but so far he's doing terrible. Relooking at Test 3 results, it looks like the Ducatis are just that bad, fastest Ducati rider, Andrea D, is 1.0 second down. Nicky's 1.5 seconds. another tough year to ride red.
