MotoGP - Winter Tests

http://www.motorcycleracingnews.net/

Melandri and Elias on the newly painted Fortuna Honda, looks sweet. Lots of new blood...Vermuelen, Pedrosa, Stoner. 2006 MotoGP will be the deepest field yet.

Definitely going to Laguna Seca in July

I think Elias is really going to turn heads next year... he came on real strong at the end of this season on the M1.

I have to admit... I'm a bit confused with the choice of Kawi to pick up DePuniet. I'd have figured maybe Jorge Lorenzo or Andrea Dovisioso. They both seemed to show more talent IMO.

I think the funny part is Luthi in last place... he just won the 125GP title, but you can tell he was a bit tentative on the throttle. Gotta be a HUGE jump from the 125 to the MotoGP bikes.

Yeah, a couple of 250 guys got to test out the MotGP bikes... I later read that he was riding when the conditions were getting bad, so that explains the big discrepancy in lap times.

while all these guys are testing the bikes Rossi was out doing testing on the Ferrari F1. Yamaha testing begins towards the end of the month in Sepang, Malaysia.
