Casey looks good with the new GP9 Bike. I’m happy to see Colin Edwards and Divizioso have good results is too bad Capirossi lost the front and crash because he look good in the Suzuki Bike and he may had finish fourth.
Next round is montegi lets hope James Toseland and Nicky Hayden have a better result.smiley
