2005 MotoGP World Championship, Gran Premi Gauloises de Catalunya Round 6 of 17

Rossi Extends Championship Lead at Cataluna MotoGP
Catalunya Spain, June 10-12th - Gauloises Yamaha Team rider Valentino Rossi re-ignited his love affair with the Spanish public today as he stormed to a fifth win from the opening six rounds of the 2005 MotoGP World Championship in front of a record crowd of 105,698 at the Catalunya Grand Prix. After losing places in a combative opening to the race, the reigning World Champion stormed through the field to go head to head with home favourite and pole setter Sete Gibernau (Honda) in another nail-biting finish. Just as he had done with Max Biaggi at Mugello last weekend and Gibernau himself two weeks previously at Le Mans, Rossi timed his victory charge to perfection, passing the Spaniard with three laps remaining and setting a stunning time of 1’43.195, almost 1.5 seconds inside the previous circuit record, to open up a decisive advantage over the final two laps.

Whilst Marco Melandri won a dramatic battle to the line for the final podium finish ahead of Alex Barros and Nicky Hayden (all Honda), Rossi’s Gauloises Yamaha team-mate Colin Edwards could only manage seventh place behind Biaggi (Honda). Despite showing podium pace through the weekend practice sessions, the American took a gamble with his tyre choice that backfired in the race as he struggled for rear grip at the demanding Spanish circuit. Despite today’s result Edwards remains sixth in the MotoGP World Championship, which is now led by Rossi with an advantage of 58 points over Melandri.

VALENTINO ROSSI (1st – 43’16.487)
“The first lap was a hard fight with a lot of riders coming crazy, everybody wanted to be at the front and it was so much fun. Gibernau set a fast pace and I tried 100% to follow him. I had some problems on the right side of the tyre early in the race but Sete started to slide too. At the end it was difficult but the bike was so good into the corners and great fun to ride. To do the fastest lap three laps from the end at a track like this is amazing - my last lap was around two seconds faster than the last lap last year and it shows the fantastic job Michelin have done with tyre endurance. I was a little worried before this weekend about the reaction from the crowd but I was so happy with the reception I got. It shows that motorcycle fans are the best kind and especially here in Spain, where it is always a pleasure to ride. The advantage in the championship is allowing the team to work in a relaxed way and we are having a lot of fun, which is an extra motivation in itself.”

Melandri Quickest in Friday Practice
Marco Melandri continued his impressive start to the season with the fastest lap on the first day of action at the Gran Premi Gauloises de Catalunya today. Melandri posted a string of hot times at the end of this afternoon’s second free practice session to leave a benchmark of 1’43.651, just out of the reach of his resurgent Honda colleague Makoto Tamada, who looks to have put his early season injury woes firmly behind him. After a disappointing showing in the last round at Mugello, Colin Edwards bounced back to form with the third fastest time overall today, having set the pace in the morning free practice ahead of his Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi.

“We started off with the base setting we found here in the winter tests and I felt comfortable straight away,” said Melandri, who lies second to Rossi in the championship standings and took third place in this race last season. “We made some adjustments in the afternoon and tried some new tyres from Michelin, which gave me a lot of grip at maximum lean. Tomorrow I want to try and improve my performance in the last section because I think I can make more time up there. In any case, I’m not getting too excited – there is a long way to go this weekend.”

Rossi was one of several riders unable to improve their times from the opening session in rising temperatures this afternoon and the reigning World Champion dropped to fifth fastest overall behind Nicky Hayden. Alex Barros, John Hopkins and Sete Gibernau were also unable to improve, giving Loris Capirossi the opportunity to boost his overnight position to sixth ahead of the trio.

Max Biaggi did improve in the afternoon but was only able to make it as high as tenth fastest, just five days after taking a close second place to Rossi in his home race at Mugello. Shinya Nakano and Troy Bayliss complete the theoretical fourth row in eleventh and twelfth place respectively, although grid positions will not be decided until tomorrow afternoon’s single qualifying session.

Toni Elías will not be competing, however, after a brief but unsuccessful return to action just 25 days after breaking his wrist and fracturing his leg in a testing crash at Le Mans. The Spaniard was only able to complete 14 laps today, with just four of those coming in the afternoon session before he returned to his Yamaha pit box in severe pain, and he will be replaced for the rest of the weekend by David Checa, who already deputised for Elías at Mugello.

Saturday Qualifying has Gibernau starting from pole in front of record home crowd
Sete Gibernau raised the hopes of a home victory for over 100,000 fans at the Gran Premi Gauloises de Catalunya with a new pole record at the Montmeló circuit on Saturday. With a record crowd expected to descend on the circuit tomorrow, Gibernau provided the perfect appetiser with a dominant end to this afternoon’s qualifying session, setting a string of fast laps including a best time of 1’42.337 to remain just out of reach of his hungry team-mate Marco Melandri, who lapped just 0.053 seconds slower than the Spaniard.

“I’m still not totally happy even though I’m on pole position because we’re still not as competitive as I would like to be,” explained Gibernau, who also started from pole position here last season. “Basically the bike doesn’t seem to work as well when the temperatures rise and it is a problem we also found at Mugello. In any case it is obviously nice to be on pole position for my home race and I want to thank all my team and Michelin for their help. Tomorrow will be a long race but I’m ready.”

Valentino Rossi completed the front row of the grid in third place after encountering tyre problems midway through the session and then later admitting that he “didn’t ride at 100%” on his decisive qualifying lap. Rossi’s Yamaha team-mate Colin Edwards also encountered problems as he ran into a group of slower riders during his own assault on the grid positions, dropping from a potential front row start all the way down to seventh place in a typically unpredictable finale.

Max Biaggi ran out of time as he rushed to make a final tyre change at the end of the session, returning to the track as the chequered flag was being prepared and then running into the gravel as he pushed to make it to the line in time for a final flying lap. However, the Italian will be satisfied to have dropped no lower than fourth place on the grid as he continues his resurgent form following a disappointing start to the season.

Biaggi’s Honda team-mate Nicky Hayden and Ducati rider Loris Capirossi, who took the factory’s only MotoGP win at this circuit two years ago, also made the second row as they took advantage of Edwards’ misfortune to move up to fifth and sixth place respectively. Carlos Checa and Alex Barros join Edwards on the third row in eighth and ninth, with the fourth row consisting of the hard-charging trio of Makoto Tamada, John Hopkins and Shinya Nakano. David Checa, who today stepped in for injured Yamaha rider Toni Elías, qualified 18th fastest.

Once again Rossi (46) waited until the 3rd lap from the end of the race to pass leader Giberneau (15), then pulled out the stops to shatterGiberneau's exhisting track lap record by some 1.5 seconds on worn tires!

Race Day and Rossi takes fifth win from six at Catalunya
Valentino Rossi continued his incredible start to the 2005 MotoGP World Championship with his fifth victory from six rounds at the Gran Premi Gauloises de Catalunya on Sunday. In front of a record crowd of 105,698 fans at the Montmeló track on the outskirts of Barcelona, home favourite Sete Gibernau could do nothing to prevent a breathtaking charge to the line from the World Champion, who smashed the circuit record by almost 1.5 seconds with just three laps remaining to open up an insurmountable advantage as the chequered flag was prepared.

“To do the fastest lap three laps from the end at a track like this is amazing - it was around two seconds faster than the last lap last year and it shows the fantastic job Michelin have done with tyre endurance,” explained Rossi, who was racing in front of a Spanish crowd for the first time since a controversial last-corner pass on Gibernau in the opening round of the season at Jerez.

“I was a little worried before this weekend about the reaction from the crowd but I was so happy with the reception I got. It shows that motorcycle fans are the best kind and especially here in Spain, where it is always a pleasure to ride. The advantage in the championship is allowing the team to work in a relaxed way and we are having a lot of fun, which is an extra motivation in itself.”

Marco Melandri remains second in the championship standings, 58 points behind Rossi, after clinching the final place on the podium for the second successive season at this track. The Italian youngster led the race in the combative early stages and was involved in a thrilling battle on the final few laps as he held off the attentions of Honda colleagues Alex Barros and Nicky Hayden, who were forced to settle for fourth and fifth place respectively.

Max Biaggi did his best to get involved in the podium struggle but was some way adrift of Hayden in sixth place as he failed to follow up a strong showing in his home Grand Prix at Mugello last weekend, when he finished second. Biaggi remains third in the World Championship, four points clear of Gibernau and ten behind Melandri.

Colin Edwards rode a lonely race to seventh place after struggling with tyre problems in the latter stages of the race, although by that time he had escaped an intense struggle for positions in the middle of the pack involving Troy Bayliss, Shinya Nakano and Rubén Xaus. Ducati pair Carlos Checa and Loris Capirossi had also formed part of the skirmish but dropped away drastically in the second half of the race, when they also encountered tyre troubles in rising temperatures at the notoriously demanding Spanish circuit.

David Checa produced a stirring ride to finish in thirteenth place, just 3.5 seconds behind his brother Carlos in only his second MotoGP appearance. Checa’s performance was made all the more remarkable by the fact he missed the first day of practice as he waited on standby for Toni Elías, who attempted to ride through the pain of a broken wrist before eventually stepping aside on Friday evening. The final point-scoring positions were taken by Roby Rolfo and Kenny Roberts.

Despite Gibernau’s disappointment in the MotoGP race there was plenty for the local crowd to celebrate in the 250cc class as Dani Pedrosa took his third straight victory by a comfortable margin of 5.637 seconds over Casey Stoner. Pedrosa was forced to battle his way through the pack in an explosive start to the race after stalling his bike on the line, his cause aided by crashes to front-runners Jorge Lorenzo, who broke his collarbone, and Alex de Angelis and a mechanical problem for Héctor Barberá. Stoner now moves up to second in the championship ahead of Andrea Dovizioso, who clinched a brave third place today after missing yesterday’s final qualifying practice due to injuries sustained in a high-speed morning crash.

Mattia Pasini became the first rider to take two victories in the 125cc class this season with a dominant display in the day’s opening race, winning by a 9.034 second advantage over Marco Simoncelli and moving to the top of the championship by a single point ahead of Thomas Lüthi, who finished seventh. Mika Kallio completed the podium today and is now third in the rider standings, a further point behind Lüthi.

Nicky Hayden gets chosen by Sarah Hostetter on The Today Show's Dating Game for his first win this season.

Monday 13th June 2005 - Valentino Rossi and Colin Edwards cut short their planned one-day test today, as the good weather from the weekend finally broke and rain moved in over the Montmelo circuit in Catalunya. After his fifth victory from five races in the Catalan Grand Prix here yesterday, Rossi planned an early start to the day and managed 17 laps before the weather turned, gathering some valuable information for the Yamaha engineers and setting a best lap of 1’44.00.

His Gauloises Yamaha team-mate Colin Edwards, who finished seventh in yesterday’s race, had been hoping to check some settings and do some tyre work, but the rain halted him and he completed only two laps before deciding to call it a day. Riders from Honda, Ducati, WCM and Kawasaki, as well as David Checa on the Fortuna Yamaha bike, decided to stay on to test throughout the afternoon despite the bad weather.

Valentino Rossi (17 laps, 1’44.00)
“We were expecting the rain and so we managed to get most of our work done in time before it came. It was a short but very important test. We tried some new engine parts so we could tell the engineers the right way to take in their development. There were some good and some bad things, and we needed to decide on one direction. We’ve decided that we probably won’t use these new parts at the next race in Holland, but we might try them in the US.”

Nicky Hayden Scores as America's most eligible Dare Devil Bachelor
on NBC Today Show
June 15th - Repsol Honda's Nicky Hayden scored a victory among a very select group ofworld-class competitors on Wednesday morning. But instead of Sete Gibernau and Valentino Rossi, Hayden beat out a football player and a singer.

The 23-year-old Kentuckian was chosen over the others on a re-stagedversion of "The Dating Game," a classic American game show that pits three men against each other for the heart of a woman. The game was staged
outdoors on the Rockefeller Plaza set of the "Today" show, the New York-based highest rated morning show in America with an average audience
of six million viewers.

PEOPLE Magazine was responsible for Hayden being on the show. The 23-year-old Kentuckian was chosen as one of the 50 Hottest Bachelors of
2005 in the June 27 issue. Joining Hayden in the roster of bachelors are Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and Colin Farrell, all fellow motorcyclists. As is Dhani Jones, the American football star who was among the bachelors joining
Hayden on the "Today" show.

"Today" show co-host Al Roker didn't believe that Hayden or the others found it hard to meet women. "Now that I'm in PEOPLE magazine I hope these women start answering the
phone when I call," Hayden joked.

The company Hayden keeps in PEOPLE Magazine is nearly as exclusive as the 22-rider MotoGP grid. "We're actually looking at guys all over the country all year long," PEOPLE Magazine's Danielle Dubin said. "He really met all the criteria that we
have for a hot guy, mainly that he's hot. He's also at the top of his game and doing something a little unusual. It fit in really well with our daredevil section. He races motorcycles at very high speed. He races the top international circuit. He's clearly successful. At 23 years old he's a pretty accomplished guy and a catch by anyone's standards."

Dubin couldn't estimate the pool of candidates for the top 50. "It's
enormous," she said at a reception PEOPLE Magazine held in honor of the bachelors. "I don't even know that we can count it. And also you have to
understand that all year long guys that are bachelors are no longer bachelors. So it's really a constant ebb and flow of bachelors and it starts out pretty big. We're seeing who's still available as we get closer
and again he's really doing well and at the top of his game. We're looking to present the hottest."

Sarah Hostetter, 25, of Seattle, Washington, chose Hayden over the other two after asking each a series of questions. The first was what each looked for in a woma

. "A girl I can connect with. I've got to be on the same page
with a girl," Hayden said. As for the perfect woman, Hayden said, "A girl who's cool. Someone, like I said, on the same page, reminds me of my mom."

The second question was easier for Hayden to answer. "Whether in a car or on a bike what's the fastest you've ever gone?" she asked the MotoGP star. "I'm your man," he answered with a smile.

"I get paid to go fast. I was kind of hoping I could sing for you. I've gone 215, 218 mph top speed, so pretty fast."

Asked to choose among the three, Hostetter said, "I really like a man who can sing and I love athletes, and I don't know if my mom's going to be too happy about this, but I love a man who can ride fast."

"I finally won something this year!" Hayden said. "It's kind of nice. I don't mind doing this stuff, but I really want to win races. It's
definitely good for the sponsors. It seems to be getting a lot of interest for the USGP which is important for everybody."

Hayden added: I didn't really realize how big this show was until my phone started ringing afterwards. It's cool to get picked."

PEOPLE Magazine is among the most successful publications in America with an audience of 40 million readers. Among them is Hayden's mother, Rose, a former motorcycle racer in her own right.

"My mom actually always reads the magazine," Hayden said, adding that being in PEOPLE is "definitely good for getting motorcycle racing. I always try to represent motorcycles in a good
way. Racing has been so good to me and my family. I love bikes at all levels. It's nice to help the country see that it's not just all Hell's Angels and bikers. There's good people that ride bikes too."

Hayden said that on the set of the television show he was a different kind of nervous than he is astride the Repsol Honda RC211V on the starting line
of a MotoGP race.

"On a starting line, I guess you get nervous, but more excited," he said. "It's a different feeling. That feeling on the starting line, that's what I live for. I love that."

As soon as his segment was finished, text messages started showing up on his mobile phone. "I'm sure I'm going to catch a lot of heat from my boys back home," he said. "Already got some text messages saying, 'I've falling hard.' And 'Is this the one? Am I bringing her home for Christmas?' I'm sure I'll get a little bit of heat on it. But it's all good fun."

Hayden was in New York for a whirlwind day of media appearances between two
races. The Repsol Honda team tested on Monday in Montmelo, a day after Hayden finished fifth in the Grand Prix of Catalunya. On Tuesday he flew to New York and prepared for today's excitement, while finding time to go for a run in Central Park. Then he was at it early on Wednesday morning, signing autographs for fans on the "Today" show and posing for photos on a Honda CBR-1000RR painted in the colors of Hayden's RC211V.

Following that was a reception at PEOPLE Magazine, then an autograph signing session in the lobby of the Time-Life Building.
Hayden will be home in Kentucky for the weekend, then leaves Sunday for the Dutch TT at the famed Circuit van Drenthe in Assen on June 25, site of the
sixth round of the MotoGP World Championship.

Fast Dates Listening Room
Here's some of the great female singers we'vebeen listening to on our CD player. Check them out and listen online at!

Natasha Bedingfield
Sexy, beautiful, and she can really sing. A pop disco diva in the Kylie Minogue style. GREAT!

Skye Sweetnam
A very cute 16 year old teen pop rocker very much like another of our favorites, Avril Lavigne. Sky sings the theme song on the cool TV show Radio Free Roscoe on The N Channel.
