Dovizioso consistently average?? With 3 podiums in a row on a satellite Yamaha? You must be joking...I could name a couple of guys sitting on factory bikes who would exchange their stats for Dovis in a heartbeat. And not yet talking about his teammate who thinks he deserves a factory bike without any significant result this season.

Pretty much the same at Assen and Saschenring, I would be suprised for a different podium of Pedrosa, Lorenzo, Stoner in some order. But Dovi is the most likly to pick up the pieces.

Cruthlow says "The second row is a good starting position and I've had decent pace all weekend, so I'm looking forward to the race."

Yes it is a good starting position IF you actually make a decent start Cal.

Come on Cal you can do it.

@190mph:

Well said, would love to see Cal on the podium, as you say a good start will help enormously around Laguna, and he certainly is fast enough to do it if he can get near the front runners early on.

So Dovi does'nt think the top 3 are beatable. Everyone better just pack up and go home then and leave those 3 to it. What a defeatist attitude, he's lost the race before it even begins.
I always thought that when you competed and saw a fellow competitor doing some fantastic things you aspired to do the same or better. It appears Dovi does not.

Why doesn't this article have Cal's name in it? Cal is the star, not Dovi! :)

Seriously though, Dovi, what kind of BullPuckey is that? All you need to do is keep up and wait for someone to outride themselves, like you do almost every race.

Cal, I'm afraid, is going to get lost on the start. After being boxed out a little, he will go wide in turn 2, then struggle to get back to P6 by the end. I'd like to see what he could do with a good start, but I don't think it is going to happen today.

My money is on Bradl for a top 7, that kid is a machine!
