Final day of testing in Sepang. Lorenzo was consistently fast during the entire 3 days. Nice to see Dovi moving up on the Duc.
Guess it's going to be another long year for "The Texas breeze"

Rossi's 2013 paint scheme, taken from the yamaha FB feed -
Is the Jerez Moto Gp Test televised today? If so, what channel can I find it on?
Another testing ruined by rain. A few dry sessions, but mostly ruined.
I hope this is not Rossi's official 2013 helmet. :thumbdown
A little off topic here, but the coverage of F1 on NBCSN have been awesome. All practice sessions, qualifying, race, and a post race show? And don't forget beIN for SBK. C'mon MotoGP (more like SPEED) get with the program!!!
oh well, there goes my dream of NBCSN or beIN hosting MotoGP. :bawling

I watched him last year and seeing his numbers this year so far crutchlow is going to be a good contender this year. Throwing down some awesome times.
Why I know is that with a decent bike Rossi is still alive and I don't care about anything else :)
It will be good to see Rossi take on the best & toughest competition he has ever faced.
Not counting the duck. hehehehe
Does anyone remember when Rossi said in bike racing "its 80% rider & 20% bike".
hmmm wonder if he still feels that way????
Yes, I just compared the Duc to a huffy. :laugh
So now, there are 6 (4 hondas, 2 yams) bikes on the grid that are basically equal so it def will come down to the rider.
Another thing, I think we all agree Nicky is not the caliber of rider as Rossi,
But He has looked as good maybe better than Rossi on the duck.
Clearly the duc is not the best bike, I was however surprised Rossi could not "with all his talent" do better on it.
& you gotta know that Ducti did all they could (moved Heaven & earth) to help him.
Lots of ??????'s here.
Sure going to be an interesting season.
If Casey came back today he would fail miserably on the Duc. It's just not as good a bike.
and they did not do all they could do.. Progress moved at a snails pace and they wouldn't listen to there riders. Honda would show up to a test with an entirely new bike while Ducati would bring a new swingarm to try.
Why do you think Prezioso (sp?) was fired?
