SPOILER Brno MotoGP test times - Monday

Quote:
Following Sunday's Czech Republic Grand Prix, round eleven of the 2009 MotoGP World Championship, most riders returned to Brno for a day of testing on Monday.

Jorge Lorenzo set the fastest lap time during the morning, with rain showers interrupting the afternoon.

The test was the second and last to be held during the present racing season and saw 250GP star Mattia Pasini making his MotoGP debut for Pramac Ducati, Repsol Honda trying Ohlins suspension and David de Gea testing (and crashing) the Blusens BQR-Honda Moto2 machine.

As well as the sidelined Casey Stoner, Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider Colin Edwards and James Toseland, LCR Honda's Randy de Puniet and Gresini Honda's Alex de Angelis also skipped the test.

Round twelve of the world championship, the Indianapolis Grand Prix, takes place on August 30.

1. Jorge Lorenzo SPA Fiat Yamaha Team min 56.171 sec
2. Valentino Rossi ITA Fiat Yamaha Team min 56.622 sec
3. Dani Pedrosa SPA Repsol Honda Team min 56.747 sec
4. Loris Capirossi ITA Rizla Suzuki MotoGP min 57.543 sec
5. Andrea Dovizioso ITA Repsol Honda Team min 57.764 sec
6. Toni Elias SPA San Carlo Honda Gresini min 57.841 sec
7. Chris Vermeulen AUS Rizla Suzuki MotoGP min 57.891 sec
8. Nicky Hayden USA Ducati Marlboro Team min 57.928 sec
9. Marco Melandri ITA Hayate Racing Team min 58.045 sec

12. Gabor Talmacsi HUN Scot Racing Team MotoGP min 59.008 sec

Yamaha owns Ohlins? I didn't know that. Don't the WSBK yamis use works suspension?


Melandri has that kawi working quite well for him.

I've seen plenty of pics of Spies bike. Since when does Ohlins not use bling-bling gold for their fork tubes?

Nitriding comes in different finishes but it's very unusual for Swedens Finest not to use their trademark colours.

throw up a link or a pic to show me what you mean

Ohlins for a short time was owned by Yamaha, but they have recently bought themselves back from what I remember.

They are no longer a Yamaha owned company.

You are right
Yamaha still have a 5% share but the majority of shares as you say has been bought back by kenth Ohlin.
Yamaha bought Ohlins in '87 or '88
