After all thinks was no so bad.....
Why??
Because Matt and Luca was to 19 seconds by Spiess....The bike is very young,without traction control..
I'm very sorry for both riders,but now,the most important think is ride ride ride,and wen electronics sistem will arrive,guys....will be very very interesting.
My opinion is that MV today was flyng!!!!Incredible,8th and 10th before problems...
GO LUCAGO!
GO MATT GO!
GO MV GO!
:drummer: :drummer:
P.S.LUCA IS OK!

Anyone know if Luca is ok.I just saw a report on www.superbikeplanet.com both Mat Maladin and Luca went down in the horseshoe.The report said was very slick in that turn.Looks like Mat made a good showing to finish with a chunked front tire,how the H-LL you ride Daytona with a chunked tire I dont know? Anyway I'm sure things will improve as the seasons progresses. Go guys !!! Go MV!!!

It was a heart breaker!!!!!!!! :bawling: :bawling: :bawling:

Matt and Luca were running soooo good I was hoping for great finishes for them both. What a bummer.

Good luck at Barber in a couple weeks. Now that's an awesome track!!!!

Ah well, they will learn and get the bike better as the season progresses, just for interest look at the amount of fork compression on the front betwen the MV and the following bike in the picture......... :jsm: could that be something to do with his high speed stability issues around the banking when the bike will be well compressed?

Thanks for the report. I think overall it is very encouraging that they can run that far up so early. Well done guys, it will only get better, great to see.

Look at it this way. he started at 16th, and made it all the way up to 8th in less than 8 laps, before he wrecked. And before Matt's tire crapped out, he went from 12th to 5th(iirc)...you can't tell me that wasn't intense...

It was great to see MV doing so well-Matt running 8th ahead of Disalvo & Luca charging thru the field in 10th. Matt & Luca were right up there with the other factory teams-great job-it's unfortunate they had some troubles.
I think the next race at Barber(April 20/22) will suit them better. GO MV GO!!!!
