Checa surprises at Official Test

Carlos Checa completed an all-Yamaha top three yesterday at the MotoGP Official Test. The Spanish veteran was one of the surprises of the day at the Circuit de Catalunya, finishing just behind the factory team riders Valentino Rossi and Colin Edwards.

Having seen theirs and Tech3's confidence in Checa's ability repayed, Dunlop were delighted with the Spaniard's form on the M1, as he finished less than half a second behind fastest rider Rossi.

Yamaha Tech3 also unveiled their new look for 2006 at the circuit, with a yellow theme also present on the factory team bikes.
