Final MotoGP Testing Times

By Sean Alexander, Feb. 13, 2004
Nicky Hayden has emerged with the fastest lap by about 7/100s of a second over Max Biaggi, after three days of official MotoGP Team Testing at Sepang. These times are as reported in the official team press releases, their accuracy is not verified. It is interesting to note this pointed remark from Biaggi: "I showed I can go fast in these difficult conditions, and consistently too, so that is a good thing." I might be grasping at straws here, but I'm thinking that Max is feeling a little insecure and needs to point out that he was consistently faster than Hayden, over the first two days of the tests. If this is indeed the case, look for a new psychological rival to rattle Max's cage in 04. Hopefully, Rossi can continue his improvement aboard the Yamaha and eventually set his M1 fox in the RC-211V's hen house -Sean
