After two days of testing at Valencia, the “usual suspects” crowded the top of the time sheets with Marc Marquez (Honda) quickest, followed by Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha) and Dani Pedrosa (Honda) … the same order in which they finished the 2013 championship series.
Of note, Nicky Hayden (Team Aspar) took his first laps on the Honda RCV1000R “Open” bike. Hayden finished with the 13th quickest time after taking a total of 76 laps. He was enthusiastic about the bike after the first day, and we will see if he can improve his competitiveness tomorrow. It should be pointed out that Hayden’s fastest lap on the Honda today bested his fastest lap on the Ducati during Sunday’s race.
We will provide a summary after the testing at Valencia is completed. Currently, poor weather is expected for tomorrow at the track.
