@concerned Indeed
Souds Weird but Japanese sense of humility doesnt allow personal achievements to be exposed. These must be rather considered as HRCs as a whole. Puig complains often that month in-month out- most HRC technicians are being traded and the new ones trend to ignore the improvements of their former mates(I wonder if this is a sort of prize for the factory workers?).

Peddy with the hole-shot.

Stoner and Lorenzo will pass him within the first 3 laps.

Rossi will pass him shortly after.

End of story.

I'm looking for where Spies ends up.

Casey winning is most likely a given at this point.

Pedrobot is the most unpopular rider on crash,with the other riders and with the fans as well. He has come out of his robotic shell slightly but still needs to do more to be endearing. To say that he is a has been is rubbishly *****ic however. The wee man rides really well like him or not.

I can't speak for why Pedrosa is unpopular with other fans, but for me it's the way he acted after taking out Hayden in 2006 (to a small degree) & mainly because of the great advantage given him by Dorna. It's not Pedrosa's fault but I just can't cheer for someone who has such an advantage over most of the field. Until Dorna enacts a minimum weight limit for rider/bike (unlikely as Repsol, Dorna and Pedrosa all Spanish)Dani will continue to enjoy this advantage. It's why he gets so many holeshots. Before arguing with me on this point, I suggest you study physics.

No doubt Dani seems to somewhat of a self-centered person but over the years he's been getting better with his public appearances, etc. Also, there might be an advantage with him being so small/light but bottom line, he still has to ride the bike. Personally, I believe a little weight might help with traction so the wholeshot isn't really that much of an advantage (yes, I took Physics while obtaining my BBA in Computer Information Systems).
