Nicky is faster on the 11.1 than the 11, but not fast enough to compete with the usual top 4 guys. He might beat Rossi, but it won't be much, probably by about as much as Rossi beat him at Brno. I would say the Spies has a better chance of winning Indy than Nicky, if for no other reason, his result on a satelite bike

Actually, anybody think another factory would take Hayden if he loses the Duc ride?? Anybody think Hayden would leave ducati on his own? After all he IS "deserving" world champ!

Anyone who thinks nick won't be up for this race is going to be surprised. I watched last year's race last night and he was firmly in 3rd place until his knee puck got ripped off on a curb.

He'll beat Vale, I promise you.

@kenlucky,

So what you're trying to tell people is that championships should be decided in a "shootout" or "chase" type system like BSB or NASCAR??

Why are you all disagreeing with kenluckys point of view?? lol

According to him Hayden was an unworthy champion because he did it with consistancy over an entire season.

This race definitely the one you don't want to miss if you were Nicky fans. He will ride the GP11.1 for the 1st time in the race, this season. Indy is likely a turning point for every rider this season.

Expect no less when everyone want to get a good result at this round because the next round will be the harder version of the same flat track of the San Marino with a multiple of U-turns.

Winning's not everything...forgot the rest. At least Ben now has the burden of raising the flag high for the US so Nick can soak up the atmosphere and enjoy life as a MotoGP hero.
