Rain spoils play for today's test at Valencia motogp.com · Bautista fastest as Rossi back on Yamaha at Valencia test

motogp.com · Repsol Honda: Rain stops play on Day 1 in Valencia


Due to a forecast of rain again tommorrow at Valencia,Yahaha moving to Aragon for testing tomorrow.









Rossi back on the Yamaha

Anyone bet against Rossi winning (or a podium at least) on his first race back on the Yamaha or Marquez getting on the podium with a win in the first half of the season.

I doubt there's anyone who would bet against him


Same top 4 again after today's test in Sepang,
Cal in 5th, Bradley in 8th ahead of Hayden on the first Ducati.

I see Marc Marquez has had a crash in testing.

I hope he doesn't have a first season like Lorenzo did....really quick....but throwing at the scenery too often!

Quote from Vale at Sepang.....

"10 laps were enough to understand the M1 is my bike. Today was a big relief" - Seven time MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi back on form after two poor seasons at Ducati.

The GOAT is back........ :HAPPY:

Yes I've seen a few quotes from him & he's sounding very positive, happy & upbeat about his return to the M1 & the Yamaha Team

Bring it on
