Just saw a short clip of MM on the RC213V (MotoGP site)

He looks like he is riding his Moto2 bike- looks comfortable.

He almost had his elbow down.

I wonder if Piro and Iannone had the latest spec Ducs to test.

Also, I thought Krop said Preziosi was going to speak today. Did I miss it?

What did I miss about Colin on an FTR Kawi?

I am pretty sure that is what he has signed on for in that photo.

MM is 1.1 secs behind Pedro. On his first time EVER aboard the bike. Shouldn't get too excited about some test laptimes, and first race is light years away. But that won't cool the media frenzy around him, that's for sure.

Good news for Stefan, he deserves the support, I'm very impressed with Marquez, maybe my predictions of "getting up to speed over his first season" area bit off!
What about Aragon? Only rumour I can find so far is about Jorge falling off his bike?

Fron the MotoGP site:

"Elsewhere, the Yamaha Factory Racing duo of Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi had a difficult session at their test in Aragón, which was marred with rain and a crash for Lorenzo. Lorenzo was fortunately unhurt in the crash. Rossi commented afterwards that he was happy with the bike, and that apart from the increase in power, not much had changed from the last time he rode the 800cc bike in 2010."

And MM and Pedrosa will wonder who is getting the good stuff too.

I heard some interesting stuff suggesting that Spies did not have the same spec bike as Lorenzo this year.

Remember 2006 when Hayden was stuck on the 'lab' bike even though he was leading the championship and far preferred the standard factory bike?

After watching the Moto2 race from Valencia, I'm really excited to see Marquez in GP this year. The dude is an aggressive passer, it'll be great to see him mixing it up with whomever he's racing with.

After one of MM's hard passes, the guys on Eurosport were wondering what would happen if he pulled such a move against Colin Edwards* Could be some fireworks, hopefully it's kept clean but aggressive.

JC

* I'd be ecstatic if CE ends up any where near racing MM in 2013.
