Really pleased for Cal - give him a good bike, a team mate he can beat & self-confidence and this is what you get.

Hope him and Dovi get more trick parts so they can mix it up with the production honda's

'Stoner's finished because he only got 3rd' is the rather predictable diversion tactic from the yellow panty bunch. Perhaps you'd like to comment on the race performance of 'The Doctor'? No? Didn't think so.

Jorge as I said you just need to keep up with Casey and the rest will follow, the bike has parity which it did not last year (well your's Ben's hmmm what's with that). Commentators said that Hayden was matching times with Cal over the latter half of the race meaning if he can get a better start he might be in that group. Rossi nowhere close and not looking getting there, Hayden's tire was shagged on the right also, he managed a decent place. My hat goes to Danni yes should have put it out there earlier but his braking on Stoner was pretty decent and that holeshot off the line. With Jerez being less of a power circuit I can see Jorge cementing the advantage and of course Stoner's arm pump will obviously plague him this year now that the Yams have closed the distance to the Honda (no complaints last year)...

To all the Rossi fans bashing stoner, 3rd is better than 10th... Keep supporting below now...
