Day two of
the Pirelli SBK test saw a distinct improvement in the weather
after rain and low temperatures affected the Ricardo Tormo
circuit near Valencia in Spain yesterday. Winston Ten Kate
Honda's Karl Muggeridge took to the 4km circuit - his first
time back on the Honda CBR1000RR after his dramatic crash in
the final race of the 2005 World Superbike championship at
Magny-Cours in France.
After 30 laps
yesterday, Muggeridge's new team-mate, James Toseland, spent a
more productive day familiarising himself with the Winston Ten
Kate Honda CBR1000RR in readiness for his debut with the team
at the first round of the 2006 series in Qatar next February.
