Casey’s back (but only test­ing)

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Casey Stoner will re­turn to test­ing du­ties for three days in Barcelona af­ter the Le Mans race in two weeks’ time. Join­ing fel­low test rider Michele Pirro, the Aus­tralian for­mer world cham­pion will be on track with both Jorge Lorenzo and An­drea Dovizioso.

While Lorenzo’s Jerez podium might in­di­cate a rapidly-im­prov­ing Du­cati Des­mosedici, both he and team-mate Dovizioso are still com­plain­ing about the ma­chine’s mid-cor­ner turn­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics which, they say, is hold­ing them back in long and fast cor­ners. Stoner is seen as the man to solve this long-run­ning is­sue.
