All this talk about how Dani took out Nicky... yes its True he did... But in the vary next race while Dani was leading Nicky, Dani though out a leg and let Nicky by, Fact! so all for your bitching about it - get over it!!! Nicky Won the championship!!!and with any luck so will Dani.

I only voted 'No' because there wasn't a 'He11 No' available. It is sickening in WSBK to see Biaggi get extra points when his teammate is ahead of him and then kicks out his leg and let's him by.

Lean 2 - Dani taking out Nicky cost Nicky way more than the point he gave up letting him by.

Oh and LC Tanner, it won't matter what Casey does, you will slate him regardless!

What have you all been watching for the last 6 years!
When has he ever given the slightest hint that he ever wants to do anything else but win, for god's sake thats what most of you winge about every time he sits on a bike! - or opens his mouth!
He is an out and out Australian sportsman, he wont be helping anybody, he WILL be trying to win, and to be honest, unless somebody hobbles his bike or knocks him off I can't see him doing anything else.
I say, good on ya sport, welcome back and give it your best shot!! And, if any of you have got anything about you, in the name of competetive sport, you'll be saying the same.

Dani will win it again in Motegi, as for Sepang and Valencia it all comes down to who wants it the most, and if Dani can keep up his intensity. PI will be difficult for Dani, historically speaking, but he might be able to finish in front of Jorge, and that race will be the hardest for Casey to let Dani go at.

Dont expect Spies to get any better, or Tech 3 be able to challenge Jorge. The problem is Yamaha have made sure Jorge has the best of the bikes and the lion share of support, so asking a team that has been very fair to both their top riders, to ask for some help from one of their riders is hardly an offense, in my opinion.

Jorge looks on edge though, his bike is definitely not as good as the Honda, for which is a better package. Even with 'less' chatter issues.

Clearly the clown who dreamed up this poll knows naught about racing. Help yourself win a race is paramount to anyone racing anything.
HRC are embroiled within their own constructors race with Yamaha.
Ridiculous and situation reversed.Picture the prospect. Dani injures himself in FP2 Motegi and obviously can't fight for the lead, yet is capable of participation. What is Stoner expected to do by HRC ? Slow down so that Dani can finish 4th while George wins ? Was Dani asked to back off at Indy ? No !
Dani and Casey are a great team within HRC. All the best to them in Motegi. Help each other win the round for HRC ? A definite yes. No brick walls !!!
Neither HRC nor Dani,nor Casey entertain such thoughts.
Nor Dorna sports for that matter.
