Props to Dovi, seems the modified chassis is to his liking

Mika Kallio top Ducati he used the carbon fibre swing arm for the first time. also had the power delivery softened in the first three gears!! Moaner is ill though, only 38 laps to kallio's 98!!

Poor Nicky, I really feel for him, 98 laps, and he's gone backwards

Rossi tested the "longlife" engine to be used from round 11 on amongst other things.

Nicky and his dad have always said that NOBODY will every out work Nicky. At some point you have to work smarter, not harder.
