Well, theres not much to talk about really. He put himself in position to be on the front row. Can fault him but he 'was' aided by Stoner and Spies crashing. If Casey and Ben are in too much pain to race or be competitive then I suppose he'll have a shot at the podium. However, I think Bradl might be the darkhorse for the box tomorrow behind Pedrosa and Lorenzo.

Agree with you bliz. With CS & BS detuned by big offs, no Nicky to pull something heroic at his home event, only a fast Bradl may stand between Dovi and 3rd.

Looking at race pace though suggest that no-ones going to get near Dani & Jorge. With Stoner in 6th and battered, Lorenzo can afford to take a safe 2nd behind DP today. I think it'll take an incident to shake up a Dani, Jorge & Dovi 1,2,3 today IMO. Bradl's going to really, really want that podium spot tomorrow too though, (& it could be his best chance)so I think he'll push hard.

@bri t

He's not losing his ride. Herve has offered him a contract but Dovi wants to ride for a factory team.

In fact, Herve has offered both Cal and Dovi contracts with the premise it's "first come, first serve." As of now, neither has accepted.
