well, I exactly predicted the podium at qatar but I'm not sure with this one. seems like the Hondas will sprint away but arent kind on tyres so the last few laps cd be a cracker. I think it will be the same 3 on the podium but not sure of the order

AB nothing reckless about Rossi, one mistake (altho Ped was a little slow in that corner and it caught him out) from a 9 time champ and that was just 'ringrust' imo, he hasnt raced at that level since 2010

@ r

Marquez mentioned that he was riding at the limit of the bike and almost lost it a few times. He had to dial it back. He also mentioned that emulating Pedrosa's style during the later laps was helpful in achieving this.

I find it sad that 2 people have disagreed with my comment that these brake protectors are worth their weight in gold!
I have to agree totally with your comment but just possibly you got a couple of "disagrees" because maybe some readers automatically do that when they see you posting as you have been very biased in the past - though I see you are now jumping on the Rossi bandwagon.
Cheers.

To be honest Kiwi,there is no band wagon to jump on.
I give praise and credit where it is due,regardless of the rider,and i criticise if i think it is justified.I will also defend a rider from unjust attack if need be.People call me a hater for this.That is up to them.
We all have our favourite riders.Mine should be obvious by my user name.But i am also a fan of all these guys who put their lives on the line for sporting glory.They are not just there for our entertainment as some will have it.
Cheers mate.

I wonder why Cal Crutchlow does not get more criticism from the commentators. British sympathy maybe? Point is not that he doesnt have the same machinery as the Aliens. He really isnt good enough. Showed it over and over last year with all those offs. This year, only one race in, we could see so clearly how he was all over the place before again running off. Talk about ambition not matching skills!

Well Dani said Rossi was coming with blistering pace and I did everything possible to stop him but he looked unstoppable...

What if it was stoner instead of Dani in those couple of times...

May be he would have jumped into moaning untill red lights go off in Austin...
