If you asked Dani Pedrosa the answer would probably be a resounding ‘Si!’
Honda’s Spanish ace completed 178 laps of the 4.4km Phillip Island circuit during three days of intensive testing for Bridgestone to help the tyre supplier find solutions for the track that’s hardest on rear tyres in the whole MotoGP season.
Pedrosa called a halt earlier than scheduled on Wednesday but was still able to fire in 32 laps on the final day, ending up second-fastest overall and earning a welcome break after...

The 2014 Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix is still several months away but the unmistakable music of MotoGP machinery was very much in evidence at the Bass Strait circuit on Monday.
Bridgestone and Dunlop have brought a bunch of riders to Australia, hard on the heels of recent testing in Malaysia and elsewhere, to evaluate a whole range of new compounds and constructions for the coming season.
In MotoGP terms it was the top riders who were at the top of the unofficial time-sheets – but...

Valentino Rossi and Dani Pedrosa were locked together at the top of the overall time-sheets as the second three-day MotoGP test in Sepang concluded on Friday – but the news wasn’t quite so good for their respective teammates.
Repsol Honda confirmed that the injured Marc Marquez won’t test again before the opening round of the season in Qatar, while Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo spent most of his second Sepang sojourn grumbling about the new-for-2014 Bridgestone tyres.
“This tyre is much worse...

Season - 3 Day
We’re not suggesting that Alvaro Bautista and the Espargaro brothers are mice, but in the absence of Marc Marquez it was those other three Spaniards who caught the eye on the opening day of the second Sepang test ahead of the start of the MotoGP season in Qatar.
Actually, what really caught the eye of the riders was the state of the Sepang track. Recent weather plus four-wheeled track activity had left the surface dirty, slippery and gripless, so it was no surprise when the times from this...
In the world we’ve made for ourselves, connections are everything: from social media to professional networking, getting connected and staying that way are central to our way of life.
Staying connected is also fairly important to the human frame, and that’s an area in which Jack Miller has been having some trouble in recent years.
It’s all about the clavicle, the scapula and the sternum.
The clavicle is your collarbone; it’s the curved, narrow bone whose function is to connect your shoulder-...
When you spend most of your life in the saddle, two months out of it must seem like a lifetime – whether you are a cowboy out on the range or a motorcycle racer itching to get back into the thick of the action.
That’s why the notoriously fun-loving Arthur Sissis had a smile on his face last week: the Australian teen was back on two wheels, though the colours had changed from his familiar Red Bull blues and reds to the livery of Indian team Mahindra Racing.
After two years with Aki Ajo’s...
Check out what the riders say after any test session and you will usually see a list as long as your arm.
Not on the opening day of the new MotoGP season at Sepang in Malaysia. Valentino Rossi put his finger right on the pulse of the 2014 season when he said: “The only problem today, for everybody, is Marquez!”
That’s because the sport’s youngest world champion began the new season right where he spent most of last year: on top of the heap on his 2014-spec Repsol Honda RC213V.
