Its only day one but Hopkins is within a hair of the circuit record set by Rossi last year.

1. Hopkins 1'40.893
2. Hayden 1'41.045
3. Rossi 1'41.273
4. Gibernau 1'41.397
5. Melandri 1'41.626
6. Barros 1'41.637
7. Tamada 1'41.668
8. Hoffman 1'41.702
9. Nakano 1'41.775
10. Edwards 1'42.018

Something to note is that Hopkins set his best times on race tires and not the soft qualifiers Rossi used to set the track record last year.......

Re: Hopkins On Top at 2005 Jerez MotoGP Test (bsess)

HEY!! Where's the "SPOILER" in the subject line!!!
Now what good is my subscription to Cycle World, when I get the results in May I will already know what happened. Geez, one little off season and everyone forgets the "rules" of posting results. A guy can't even surf the web without the risk of getting actual information .




Yes, that was sarcasm. Just getting ready for the race season...............

Re: Hopkins On Top at 2005 Jerez MotoGP Test (bsess)

I made a mistake. The front page of the MotoGP website posted that Hayden ran a 1.39.383 when in fact it appears he ran 1.39.893. The Kid still good though...

Good to see Hopkins so consistent, top 4 all 3 days. With the first race from Jerez less than 2 weeks away, be good to see if the Suzuki can run upfront in race conditions!
