Go honda, by the way they have won 12 times out of 25 at brno, more than any other manufacterer. Lorenzo just got the advantage now, come sunday itll be different. Marquez or pedro for title :) :)

Everyone of course looks at the sharp end.... but anyone else noticed how RDP seems to be struggling lately?

Ok, Aleix Espagaro has had the upper hand of the two - but not by much. That is until recent races when the gap seems markedly bigger.

I'd have to wonder if (esp.since RDP has been testing the Suzuki) has RDP's level of support from the team been reduced? Seems weird that only he should lose quite so much competitiveness when the 2 riders always were a lot closer?

I'm really looking forward to this race. Things are starting to get serious now and this race can be a turning point in the championship. If Lorenzo wants to have a sniff of the title this year he can't let Pedrosa pass him in every race and settle for second as he did last year. He's going to have to fight for wins in every race, and not just against Pedrosa, but against Marquez too. He can't afford to settle for a comfortable second or third while hoping for others to make mistakes. He needs to start fighting back, starting from now. Brno is a track where the Yamahas can do well. He needs to win here. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do, and hopefully - if there are no more injuries -we'll be able to see some good battles up front before the end of the season. We sure need more of those.

Yeah, its pretty clear there is a #1 in the power Aspar garage, kind of a shame, hope RdP ends up on a factory Suzuki team and Aspar picks up the Aprilia.

i am sure the sponsors are hungry to see Aleix do some damage though.
