Yates to ESP?

Postby Roger@Arroyo » Thu Sep 06, 2012 9:57 pm

Not 100% yet, but good possibility they'll be at Miami and New Orleans with a goal of a full season next year.

I obviously can't comment about a closed private test like this until it's public knowledge....now it is!

Evan and Dave (US.MEGAMAX.COM) flew down Mike Fitzgerald (THERMOSMAN SUSPENSION) down for the test and I spent all day in the pits watching and learning. Fun day although Aaron was out of his element on our tight bumpy track :mrgreen: Took him a few sessions to get used to it and then went about testing all day. They revalved the shock a bunch of times and tested different geometry quite a few times. Interesting to see how a pro team and rider test. It's slightly different than when Tony tests, as Aaron brought the bike home in one piece every time.

It will be great to see him back in the thick of it. Finally a reason to watch AMA again, LOL.

That's fucking awesome..

ESP really deserves to have a rider that can put that bike on the podium, and possibly win some races..

Very slightly slower than my best lap. So, yes, close to 1:06, and he did it in less than a day unlike anyone else that has gone that fast. Plus, he did it during testing, he wasn't going for lap times.
