Cool Kenny, making us proud!

American Kenny Noyes rode with four pain-killing shots in his right hand and completed only 15 laps on the third day of the final Moto2 tests at Jerez de la Frontera, but still managed fifth best time, just .360 from the quickest time of 1:44,044 set by Italian Claudio Corti. Kenny left the tests satisfied with the development of the bike. He suffered a high-sider when his Honda 450 single-cylinder training bike (a Moto3 type road racer) seized while he was training on the Motorland SuperTT track the week before the final Jerez tests.

At Jerez Doctors at the Clinica Mobile assured the rider and team that it was only a hairline fracture and that he would be completely recovered when the season starts at Losail. Qatar on April 9-11.


Kenny Noyes:
"We have to be satisfied with the results of the three days. We have the Jack & Jones by Antonio Banderas Pro-Harris working well and we know how it reacts now to slight adjustments. Sure, I'd be happier if we left here with the fastest time, but I wasn't able to push as hard as I would have if I had been 100%. We didn't even put in a soft tire, so we know we have more in reserve. The hand was OK on Friday, but a little worse on Saturday and so on Sunday I just went over to the Clinica, got some shots and went for it. I was planning to go out again on a soft tire, but the painkiller wore off early and we decided to load up. We are ready to race now and this class is shaping up like I thought with more and more guys getting faster and faster every time out."

eoapo- buy a damn ad. Don't crash threads. At the very least start your own thread and quit hijacking.

Moke- Kenny is going to be fine in Moto2. I don't think he will transition into a GP rider, but he's an exciting FX/Superbike rider. I wish there were 1 more American, but Kenny should do us proud.

Not the way I hear it. They are suppose to be the new generation 250 4strokes, I think the referrence was to the chasis. They begun developing the 3 chasis and I think that many modern 450 singles are near the same hp and weight as the 250 4strokes race ready motors.
