Like the big plans they started with when it came to carving the brand-spanking-new Motorland Aragon into the high-desert backcountry of Spain, I had big plans for MasterBike 11, back on schedule after a year off due to financial constraints and in streamlined form. Rather than being made of three classes—divided among middleweights, the odd 750, Twins and Open-classers—as in the past 10 MasterBike events, this year we'd keep it simple, raging on the new crop of liter-class bulls exclusively. And instead of three days of timed testing like before, we'd get a single day of practice to learn the new circuit and familiarize ourselves with the nine superbike contestants, followed by four flying laps on Day Two—sort of an extended Superpole—to find the winner. >
