Pit Crew left a tool on his brakes. It was stuck inbetween the lever, his hand, and the bar...

Pretty sure that was during the race.

Don't read too much into these #s. It is testing do they are trying different settings. I think we all realize cal isn't the 4th fastest in the field on a satalite bike.

Correct. I figured that's what CodyGP was talking about since he did okay in testing. Maybe not though?

Well both honestly, just because its testing doesn't mean the times aren't worth analysing.

What really worries me is that Ben has always been fantastic at new tracks that he has never seen. Just watch the 2009 WSBK Year in Review and you'll understand the talent this kid has. My fear is that, in the past, incredible riders for some reason or another, can just vanish in MotoGP for no obvious reason. Top 3 one day, bottom 5 the next, and never recover. Just hope Ben isn't losing confidence in himself to push to the limit required to be in the top 5 like he once was.

MotoGP is 90% mental.

No question in my mind now, top Honda pilots are Pedrosa and Simo


Alberto
