Regarding lean angle: Only in that photo! Watch him closely over a race weekend, he's definitely one of the main guys who get the elbow on the ground very, very regularly. Although Stoner is certainly the master of that at the moment.

Tom, Your the ******* idiot,,,,,,,,, he has every right to talk his chances up, he's a brilliant rider, Randy Mamola one compaired him to be as good as Rossi. If Bautista was on a full rece spec HRC Honda and on Olins he would be better than Pedrosa, maybe not as good as stoner but defo 2nd or 3rd place every race

Not sure what your problem is, Tom. For one, I don't see Alvaro claiming he's "the man" anywhere in his statement or at any point in the past either, please elaborate on your strange outbreak.

Secondly, of the regular front runners only Pedrosa and Stoner were staying on the hard rear (since it was dry, I'd count out Rossi from the regular front runners for now) and Bautista actually was the first to brake the circuit record and then finished close to Lorenzo, going faster than the much-heralded Crutchlow as well as Dovi etc. In short, it was pretty impressive. So what exactly is your problem?
