At least in pit lane there were a few things worth seeing. Cal Crutchlow’s crew may still be wearing the CWM Rewards logo but the bike was dressed in Castrol green. Our amigos over at Crash.net got the scoop from LCR boss Lucio Cecchinello.

Tech-3 Yamaha Brno test 2015Several bikes had slicks and dry setups ready to go, but only a few made it on track. Pol Espargaro was one, but moments later the rain started in earnest and the slicks went back into the truck.

Notice that the Bridgestone logos have disappeared from the Tech 3 Yamaha, as they have from all the other bikes participating on the day.
