@Magneto

Well you've been busy this morning spreading the yellow gospel, huh? You expect a podium finish from Rossi? First time out the gate on a new bike that he hasn't ridden *wink* *wink*? So Ducati has gotten it right and they are immediately going to be better than a couple of Hondas and the Yamahas? Without any testing *wink* *wink* they are going to show up and put it on the box? Maybe so but I wouldn't bet any money on that one this weekend. You know, they have to start out qualifying the Tech 3 bikes first.

I think maybe this is the part of the season where the satellite bikes might start to show the development deficit to the factory bikes. Yamaha supplied Tech3 with pretty good kit at the beginning of this year but now the factory teams are stepping up their program and it's going to get much harder for satellite team riders to keep pace.

On Colin himself, I'm beginning to think that he might well be around at Tech 3 again next year. When he's riding as well as he is right now, it's difficult to imagine that he could lose his place, despite the rumours. And with Tech 3 due to get the new 1000cc Yams in 2012, a development rider of his experience would be very useful.

I said expect (rather than hope) as fans (be it stoner, lorenzo, rossi, cal, spies, edwards etc) expect their favorite to win even if they are the underdog..

thats the situation here..

hoping for a good race.. hopefully no more injuries..
