Bayliss and Nakano search for extra horsepower

Troy Bayliss and Shinya Nakano took the eternal search for extra horsepower to a new level today when they visited the world famous Royal School of Equestrian Art in Jerez. The Australian and the Japanese MotoGP stars, who are currently preparing for the Gran Premio Marlboro de España in the southern Spanish town, were treated to an exclusive traditional display by some of the top riders in Spain, on purebred horses.

"To be honest I have never really liked horses," admitted Bayliss. "My sister used to have one when I was younger but it never seemed to like having me onboard so I would just go and ride my motorcycle. But this is truly fantastic – the horses and the riders are really impressive. I reckon my sister will be proud of me!".
