VALENCIA TEST ENDS UNDER THE RAIN
Fabiano Sterlacchini -- Alice Team Technical Director
"These two days have been very important for us. Our two young riders, Mika and Niccolò, had the possibility to get to know the bike's characteristics and the method of work of the Team. For what it concern Mika, it was the first time he tried a MotoGP bike and therefore he had to understand every single detail. Both of them have worked really well and they were able to give us important information at each run. I am very happy, it seems like everything has started in the best way possible."
Niccolo Canepa -- Alice Team rider
"Today it has been a very important day because during the tests done last year I never had the opportunity to ride under the rain. I found my self very well and I am really trustful. Even if I didn't push at the maximum, I made it to constantly improve and this is the most positive thing. We couldn't ride for many laps today due to the weather conditions, but at least we have the first sensations on dry and wet track."
Mika Kallio -- Alice Team rider
"To be honest, from what I have seen on television and from the rumors I heard, I expected a much more aggressive bike, instead I found it really manageable and easy to move at each turn. My personal impression is that I found much more difference passing from the 125 to the 250. The Desmosedici is a really special bike and I can't wait to be able to step on the 2009 version."
