XAVI'S VALENCIA OUTING
Alstare Corona rider Xavi Simeon took advantage of almost perfect conditions, at Valencia today, to get his leg over a motorcycle for the first time this year. Today was just a shakedown, as a new 600 is on the way, and Xavi put in 38 laps in preparation for tomorrow. But, he was able to test the new Pirelli Diablo Corsa tyres and that in itself was a good reason for today's outing.

Although I was on last year's bike today, it was good to get back into the saddle and be riding again. I did however test the new Diablo Corsa tyres and they are quite an improvement because with them you can go faster, longer. Hopefully I will have a 2006 bike tomorrow - very standard indeed - and I will be able to see what the differences are between them.
