Steve Rapp (No. 318 Corona Extra Suzuki) "Everything is moving along. It's my first time on the bike ever, so were going through and getting done most of the things the other teams do in testing. I am a little bit surprised I'm up to speed so far, especially since we missed most of the first session."
Chris Caylor (No. 151 EMGO Suzuki) "Last week I tipped over and broke my foot so if you see me in the pits I'm running around on crutches, but on the bike I'm alright. I got a little bit behind by not getting up to speed last week, I think everyone comes in and uses the CCS week to freshen up. The championship is a long race and after breaking the foot I figured I should just go out this week and try to get some points and hopefully get healed up for California." (Caylor broke his left foot Friday in practice for the CCS races)
Chris Ulrich (No. 18 Valvoline EMGO Suzuki) "It's going OK, we're just trying some different things. We were working with some different spring rates and it didn't quite work out. (Ulrich is nursing a sore shoulder, which he separated while doing a magazine bike test six weeks ago) After this morning it was pretty harsh - it felt pretty bad. But I've put some ice on it and took some aspirin and it seems like the swelling went down. I really want to put it on the podium for the team, but we'll see how it goes."
Jason DiSalvo (No. 440 Cruise America Suzuki) "I went down in the International Horseshoe - I just high-sided. My tires weren't quite warm and I was a little over-aggressive. I think I've broken my right foot. I went out and tried the 250GP practice session, but the pain was too much. I'll just have to see if I get put something on it to keep it from moving too much and I should be OK."
Jimmy Moore (No. 1 Corona Extra Suzuki) "I was not able to test over the winter. The team came together sort of late. The team's done a good job of prepping the bikes so and that minimized some of the frustration. Having a teammate presents a lot of competition on the team and each one of the riders should bring something to the table, so I'm glad it worked out that way."
