Valencia Test
WSBK Test in Valencia

Karl Muggeridge found himself the only Ten Kate Superbike rider finishing the three day test here at Valencia, after Chris Vermeulen had to withdraw after a few laps on day one, as his wrist was lacking of strength after the recent wrist operation. Muggas himself suffered a huge high-side on the second day, but managed to soldier on despite some hyperextend ligaments in his right wrist and lapped the Valencia circuit with a 1'37.200.

Muggas comments: "We are pretty pleased with the test down here in Spain, it was very productive, we got to try new brakes, some prototype forks, suspension links and different engine parts which should give us some important information for the development of the machine back at the workshop. Our lap times are slightly back from the fastest man, but nothing to worry about considering we've been using the same race tyres through-out the three days and haven't tried out any of the softer tyres that Pirelli brought along."

Muggeridge is of the SHARK Extreme event for a couple of days in Biarritz and than back to Spain (Jerez) for the Honda Press Test and than the new CBR 600 launch at Estoril Portugal from the 25th-30th November.
