Toseland and Crutchlow enjoy a productive first test day at Valencia

Posted:

Sterilgarda Yamaha world Superbike riders Cal Crutchlow and James Toseland settled in for their second test with their new 2010 team today at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia. The British pairing spent the day working through various electronic settings on the bike, including the anti wheelie control and the traction control to find a smoother feeling on the throttle of the championship winning R1. Crutchlow also spent some time working with the team to perfect his positioning on the R1, a larger bike than his championship winning R6. James Toseland, who clocked a 1‰Ûª34.8 lap time said, ‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs nice being on a track I know so I could really concentrate on the bike, unlike Portimao in the last test where I was learning the circuit as well. "I think we‰Ûªve been really competitive today, the times I‰Ûªve been doing have been really comfortable, so a sign for me that the bike and team is working well. We‰Ûªve been mainly working on the electronic side of things today. It‰Ûªs such a new bike, there were a lot of things the team wanted to try out during the 2009 season but didn‰Ûªt have time to do, so the team are taking the opportunity to try some new things with a new rider to see if there‰Ûªs an improvement.‰Û
