It was noted during the above testing that the factory Ducatis have a strange switch on the triple clamp.  Nice and bulky, so easily operable by a gloved hand.  The mutterings are that it is a holeshot device similar to those fitted to MotoX bikes.  Apparently the rider, while braking hard as he approaches his grid position flicks this to one side.  This locks the front suspension in the compressed position making it possible to pull away faster without having to worry about wheelies.  When he then brakes, even harder for the first corner, the device releases the suspension to work normally from then on.

I for one cannot wait for this season to start. Really looking forward to the new Moto2 Format. Riders appear to be very happy with the engine characteristics of the triple.

Courtesy from Grizz: In this day and age religion is often frowned upon, but I have met some of the most amazing people from various religions over time.
From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.

He was only banned for 2018.  I am surprised he got a ride again, though.

Ja.  He is a talented rider, if he can manage his own demons.  He is causing himself real harm with his temper.  He got kicked out of the VR46 Academy because of his temper.  He could have been on on of the VR46 Motor 2 bikes the past year and this year and be in MotoGP next year.  Two VR46 riders one generation ahead of Fenati is already in MGP.

Nice to see Steven in the mid pack.

Yep, especially since he is riding with an injury which is not 100% healed yet.  I think we all know Brad will do reasonably well, possibly even be champion, but I enjoy following Steven who, with his team who are basically rookies at this level, make steady progress to the points and even regular top 10's.

Official MotoGP testing from Qatar. 

Times from yesterday. 

For Yamaha, it looks similar to previous years.  MV very fast.  VR fast.  Hope the similarity to previous seasons ends here and that the Yamies stay competitive.  Both riders seem happy with the bikes and believe they may have solved the traction and tyre issues that plagued them during recent years.

The Ducatis are exactly where we would expect them.

Interesting where Honda finds themselves. I wonder what they are working on.  Will be interesting to see how they place today.

1= Maverick Viñales ESP Monster Yamaha (YZR-M1) 1m 55.051s [Lap 48/50]

Ai tog, hoe sukkel Rossi so uit die staanspoor uit.
