Troy Bayliss completed his first day of testing on board the Desmosedici GP9 at Mugello today alongside regular factory test rider Vittoriano Guareschi. It was a first outing for the Australian on a MotoGP bike since the final round of 2006, when he followed up his second World Superbike title by competing in the final Grand Prix of the season at Valencia, scoring a sensational one-two for Ducati with victory ahead of his team-mate Loris Capirossi.

The constantly evolving 2009 MotoGP World Championship continues this weekend, with the Le Mans circuit set to host a fourth round that will see each practice session return to a 60-minute format, as opposed to the 45-minute rule imposed at the start of the season.
There is constant evolution behind the scenes too, specifically in Bologna and at Mugello, where Ducati test rider Vittoriano Guareschi is preparing to be joined tomorrow by Troy Bayliss for the start of a three-day test focused on using the data from the opening three rounds of the season to further develop the GP9.

Since that decision Moto2 has ignited more then a fair share of controversy, bickering, and bitterness – nearly killing the series before the first flag ever drops.
