Don Canet is the team mate of Micky Diamond on the Pikes Peak Spider Grips Ducati Team and he is providing simply excellent coverage of the event via his Twitter feed Here
Reportedly, Ben Spies' Twitter account had a post yesterday which now has eyebrows fully raised in the MotoGP paddock.
Spies underwent surgery on both of his shoulders yesterday and is expected to be off the bike for an additional eight to ten weeks.
At one point, presumably before the surgery, Spies' Twitter account had a message which read Saw the doc today. not great. Off to surgery tomorrow! Bet Carlo is so excited he wont remember to wipe the powder off his nose.

Does this sound familiar? Well here's the fix...
If you are a motorcycle race fan, chances are good you got up this morning, (as early as 5:30 am for those of you on the left coast), got all settled in for the spectacle of World Superbike Superpole being streamed on BeIn web live or on the tv if you are one of the lucky ones that has access to that, only to find...nothing.
After asking a number of web saavy friends why they didn't use Twitter it became clear that some people still think it's for posting photos of what you had for lunch....
Good start with beautiful Panigale. 2 intense and possitive days of testing, finding good confidence. Ciao
"Fit to continue at this event"
(loosly translated from Italian)
"It was a great shame not to be able to be competitive on the Ducati. It would have been a great satisfaction for me and for all the guys who worked with me and fun for all our fans. I'm sorry."
"Anyway there are still 8 GPs until the end and we will keep trying our best to do some nice races. Ciao all from Indy. #valeducati"
