Brno Post-Race Test - Day 2 Times

Testing continued at Brno on Tuesday, though it got off to a very slow start due to the rain that had fallen overnight. If there's one man that isn't afraid of the rain, it's Anthony West, and so the Australian Kawasaki rider was the first out on the slowly drying track. Once the track dried sufficiently, he was joined by 13 other riders who had stayed on to test. West also spent some time testing qualifying tires, as this was his first opportunity to test the qualifiers outside of an actual qualifying session.

At Yamaha, Valentino Rossi spent time testing the new engine with pneumatic valves, but the new power plant clearly still needs development, as Rossi only managed the 11th fastest time. Rossi also spent a lot of time testing new Michelin tires, none of which provided the necessary step forward.

For Casey Stoner, service continued as normal, the Australian being fastest on both days. The fastest three times were all set by Bridgestone-shod riders, with Stoner finishing ahead of John Hopkins and Randy de Puniet. Nicky Hayden set the 4th fastest time, as fastest Michelin rider.

Testing is now completed, and the circus packs up to move on to Misano, where the next round of racing takes place on September 2nd.
