ok dave, fair enough, with more competition this year, I would bet jlo doesn't finish outside the top 3. I agree a fully fit Rossi is a force to be reckoned with. I still think Lorenzo is going to win the title though. I just don't see rossi being able to have a perfect race every single time (which is what it will take to beat 99) and certainly not as frequently as lorenzo, just my opinion though. and aurossi, I would like to hear from you come seasons end if 99 wins the title, as I will certainly fess up and say I was wrong if he doesn't.

@ Ausrossi 'Jorge won't do back to back, but if he does against this field (assuming they all stay fit) I will call him a better rider than Stoner. '

Ok, so would you call him a better rider than Rossi too?

Ok so your saying that Lorenzo's titles were gifted due to injury and Stoner/Rossi being on the Ducati????

Hmmmmm, well lets look at 2008 and 2009 shall we.....

2008, Lorenzo wasa rookie and injured. Stoner was on the Ducati. Voila. WC for Rossi.

2009. Lorenzo broke both ankles and colarbone, injured. Soner on Ducati. Voila. WC for Rossi.

See, if thats how you want to play it, then it works both ways.

Yawn same old school playground arguments from armchair fans who probably do not ride a bike. Testing is not racing and racing is the only place where it counts. Then we shall see.

Why is everyone putting so much stock in a half days practice?? Of course Pedrosa is going to have the fast time, the bike is pretty much dialed and all he has to do is try for fast laps. Lorenzo is pretty much in the same boat. Everyone else is trying to get their setup to baseline. Fast laps come later for them.
