Repsol rider, unstoppable in first test, returns to Sepang to perfect RC213V setup

Repsol rider and new father Casey Stoner goes back to Malaysia with plenty of motivation to carry on topping the timesheets from which he was unshakeable last month. He will be on track for three days in the official test, adjusting the setup of his Repsol Honda RC213V to his riding style.

The testing trip follows a few days in which the reigning World Champion has been spending time with his wife, Adriana, and newborn baby girl Alexandra (Ally). The Australian has been combining family time with intense fitness preparation in order to keep up the form that he showed just a few weeks ago at Sepang.

Stoner will be joining up with teammate Dani Pedrosa and the rest of the Repsol riders the Saturday following the test, this time on European soil. He will be one of the star attractions of the 3rd March Repsol Team 2012 presentation at the Palacio de Deportes de la Comunidad de Madrid.
