Biaggi, Mladin, Corser. Same track, same day

If all comes to fruition, they'll all be testing at Philip Island next week.

Biaggi gets a pass, but I somehow doubt that there'll be any "I am slow today because we are just setting up bike". I think he'll want to make a splash ASAP.

Same goes for Maldin....he doesn't have the seat time that either Biaggi or Corser has, but I'm sure he knows his way around PI

Different spec bikes, different tires (pirelli v. dunlop), three hard chargers. I will watch for the lap times with great interest........

In other news, WSBK is gonna be a lotta fun this year!!!!

I think it will be interesting to see how Miladin will do against the WSBK machines. I think he will be right there. If you put them all on the same bike I think Maladin would be faster.

Maladin will NOT be the fastest of that bunch... even if on the same machinery!

Lets put the Kool Aid down kids.... time for bed!

The #'s I've seen to date have him right in there.....

Shame the Biaggi thing didn't pan out......mighta been interesting.......

I read somewhere he's off testing an F1 car.......wouldn't it be great if him and Rossi both went to F1? They'd be "rubbin' panels" all day, smashin' up billion dollar cars...

HEY, HAVE YOU HEARD THE LATEST?

From Soup:

After three days of testing, US Superbike champion Mat Mladin has now scored the fastest time of the Phillip Island test. Mladin is testing on the Australian land mass with Yamaha WSBK, Foggy Petronas and Alstare Suzuki including current and two-time WSBK champion Troy Corser.

At least one day remains in the multi-day test but it's unknown how many of the WSBK teams will continue to test.

Corser was the early—and much heralded—fast rider of the test, which led to much chest-thumping by the pro-WSBK crowd. Corser uses spec tire Pirellis while Mladin is on Dunlop tires. Corser has raced and ridden at Phillip Island for years while Mladin has not lapped the place since 2000 when he tested the RGV500 Suzuki GP bike.

Mladin suffered a huge, bike-bending crash on the first day of the test, high-siding at high speed in the "Hayshed" portion of the Phillip Island track. Hayshed is usually a fourth-gear or so corner and if you're going to make a short list of Places I Never Want To Highside At it may not head the list, but it's on there, in perpetuity.

Mladin's crew, headed by second-generation race mechanic Peter Doyle and the ever-present Reg O'Rourke, had to basically build him a new bike from spares. In the mean time, Mladin went to the hospital to get his arm stitched back together after the crash but it's, as Monty Python would say, "merely a flesh wound".

Don't forget, he's running on Dunlops from a series with tire competition (although not all that great of competition) while the others are all on the Pirelli spec tire that I believe isn't quite as 'good' perhaps.

Very astute observance CMUlford... I wouldnt kow how much difference would be in that level of a tire.

I know he is good, I just dont want to admit he is that good!

Yeah, me neither, there needs to be a reason. Then again, the SOB seems to be able to run away from his own teammates at will so.... I hate him.

Perhaps but the equation is a little muddier that that, methinks. For example, those "spec" Pirellis were nippin at MotoGP times at Losail.

I think it simply comes down to how good Mladin is....very good
