End of Test 1
Marquez is close behind, and Crutchlow is the fastest of the non-factory prototype bikes, on the same "second" as the aliens. The departure of Stoner leaves room for someone to step up; one would think Marquez will make some rookie errors to allow others, like Cal and Stefan Bradl, to approach the podium.
Whatever -- Casey's skill is without question, but Rossi's persona is something special, and I am happy to see him back at the front, even if it is just testing. This argument could go on forever, but really requires a group of bench racers, some beer, a big-screen TV, and some racing... when is Qatar???
