Check the test times from Jerez where WSBK and the MotoGP Ducati team are on site.

Showcase of the talent in the WSBK paddock, or just another showcase of the pathetic MotoGP effort from Ducati?

Yonny Hernandez and Michael Laverty have been confirmed as the PBM riders.

Lorenzo has also opted to NOT run w/a #1 plate next year, and stick with #99.

^ Yup lean angles = crazy lol, and haha ya maybe who knows? i know back in the days w Doohan & Rainey after a world championship win they worn #1 plate the following year. Was Rossi the first to not Run #1 plate maybe? Then again, he is "46" so "1" would look funny lol

I think barry sheene was the the 1st not to change to the #1 plate (?), also the 46 was rossi's fathers race number so maybe thats why he's always run that plate, plus like you said rossi is 46, the whole world knows it.

I've seen pics of the number 1 on his leathers though

So WSBK riders Laverty (RSV4) and Sykes (ZX-10) were faster than Hayden and the Duc?? also Dovi only did 2 laps, had neck issues, is also getting a plate removed from his shoulder...

Seeing how even with the disaster of the last couple Ducati years Rossi's been #1 over half the time he's been riding. If he would have run #1 plates he would have only run #46 eight times in his career of 17 years. I think the reason to not run #1 was similar to Sheene but in hindsight it was pretty shrewd as he's turned the number 46 into a brand. Had he run the championship number we'd have to rack our brains remembering what his number is half the time. Anyone remember what Doohan's number was? Right? Rossi will be selling merchandise with the number 46 on it long into his retirement while Doohan does another insurance commercial for extra money.

I'm amazed at how fast Marco has taken up the pace. Looks like we might see a few all Spanish podiums this year.

He's probably alluding to the fact that this past season is over and referencing this year as the year to come. Makes sense to be honest. They're testing for next season or this(upcoming) season.

You're overthinking it. I just like to mess with Sincal since he's Ze Grammar-Nazi. Either way we have to get thru the end of the world before any racing will take place in 2013.

Dovi has more experience and performed much better than Cal. My guess Tech 3 couldnt afford the 3 riders. Their perspective was Cal is more marketable but why have two british riders? Diversity is better IMO and we are not talking about some prodigy (Bradley Smith) Poncharal should not have compiled and signed that contract in such a hurry. Dovi should know that the money he will be paid by Duvati is going to come with some attached heartache in the form of their ox.

on whorghey copying his idol.

If I remember correctly, some riders were commenting on Lorenzo and that what makes him special is obvioulsy his smoothness but on top of that how much lean angle he can carry. I have never heard that comment being used to describe someone's riding before. Thoughts?

So Jlo' really going to run 99? It's his call but I kinda liked that JL in the shape of a 1. Thought it was clever. Were it me I would have run that #1 just so Rossi would have to see it every day from the other side of the garage. Jorge has been more than magnanimous towards Rossi since he left and came back to Yamaha. Considering the stick Rossi was giving him when he showed up you'd figure he might be serving some of it back. Big on him. I think he just plans to try and soundly beat him on equal terms over the next two years. Leave it all on the track.

Pretty interesting read on superbikeplanet. Rossi isn't the first rider to make what was anticipated to be a "Dream Team" type pairing.
