Do those guys really need to be one second faster than whatever the others perform each and every time?!

...HECK.

Didn't their parents teach them that nobody likes a show-off? That's impressive stuff, friends and neighbors...

Those guys are throwing down. Spies looks to be in a good position, but what really strikes me is Cruthlow 2 seconds off the pace and Elias 3! That isn't going to cut it.

has plenty of time to adapt to the category.
He shouldn't rush but take time to build confidence while discovering the category, bike, tires and tracks.
Better stay racing in GP that being very promising off the start and vanishing after 2 seasons...

looks like Cal ran about half as many laps in the 2nd session, did he have a fall? or is he taking to a little too much time off the bike? ;-)

I've not yet become a twitter-er(?), but I guess I should have looked at the feed. that glove pic...I hate it when that happens! Thanks for the pointer(s). - nozz

With the Ducati still behind where Stoner was pushing the GP10, no quick-shift, and the Frenchman riding faster than Rossi, I'm wondering if Hayden will go back to the big diameter forks from last year at all.

Great job Honda for putting the technology and inner-team competition in place to dominate the experimental tests.

No more excuses, bad-luck, or injuries to hide behind, all will soon be ripped open to exposure at the finish line. Let's go racing.
