Heavy fall follows strong start for Checa.

Carlos Checa made an encouraging debut for the Tech 3 Yamaha team at Qatar on Sunday - setting the fastest lap time out of the six riders present - but saw his day two efforts end early after receiving a bang to the head during a heavy fall.

"My first impressions are very good," confirmed Checa yesterday, after completing his first day riding an M1 with Dunlop tyres. "I have achieved the best time of the day and felt much better than I had expected. The feeling with the tyres has also been very good.

"I completed 70 laps and, although I admit we still have a long way to go, I am very satisfied with these first steps in this new adventure that I face in my MotoGP. We still have two more days of work and I am willing to give my best," he added.

However, day two - when the Camel Yamaha Team joined Tech 3, plus the Kawasaki and Ducati test riders, out on track - didn't go at all to plan:

"I suffered a fall and as a consequence of it was forced to leave the track," Checa explained. "The problem is that due to the blow on my head, at the beginning I was feeling a bit confused. As it has happened before midday, we considered that it was better to go back to the hotel so I can recover for tomorrow (Tuesday).

"The explanation for my crash could be that the tyre I was using was too hard so I lost grip sooner that I expected. But in spite of this withdraw, I am very satisfied with the work and the results in this first step with Tech 3, the bike and also Dunlop tyres.

"Even if the aim of this first test is not to set the best time, I have maintained a good rhythm. I hope to feel better tomorrow so that I can ride again as, apart from the shock, I have not suffered any other injury," he declared.

Actually I think it's:
when falling, avoid landing on head.
