This was Toseland's first laps aropund Portimao, no? I know Spies showed that he could ride those tracks right from the get-go, but he's something special. Cal had just finished a race weekend there. Makes sense that Cal would be putting in quicker laps. Wasn't it just a year ago we were blown away that Spies was lapping Portimao the day after the races on Haga's old R1 only a few tenths of the race pase? Seems to me Toseland's in the ballpark already...
Some people keep saying that next year's definitely Haga's year (since Ben's gone ) but I don't see it. With Cal, JT, and a more seasoned Johnny Rea, and Biaggi w/ more experience on the Aprilia, something tells me that Haga will miss out again...

A motorcycle is a joy machine. It's a machine of wonders, a metal bird, a motorized prosthetic. It's light and dark and shiny and dirty and warm and cold lapping over each other; it's a conduit of grace, it's a catalyst for bonding the gritty and the holy.
