Only way he could lose this would be if has a bad start and lets Dani or Lorenzo get away too far. I'm sure he and his team know this so I expect him to try have a good start and go to the front from lap one.

Well as Julian Ryder incessantly quotes Rossi "goes better in the circuits he grew up in ". I swear if he repeats that quote again this weekend I may throw a shoe at my tv...

But yes I think at a track like Jerez, it's time for Rossi to show what he's really got this year. I think the way he's riding, and if he has no more accidents, he could well get on the podium.

There is an interview in where he said, after Friday testing for the Argentina gp, that Yamaha were a bit baffled why the Tech 3 bikes were in front of the Movistar bikes, and that they think it's because even though the 2014 M1 may be a bit better than the 2013 one, with the new tyres it destroys them more, so they were going to test the old rear swing arm that Smith and Pol have. I dont' know if they used it in the race.

And so once again the PR machine winds up into action.

"So... What can we tell the stupid punter this week to try and make it more exciting for them? We need to create the idea that there is really, really some doubt about Marc being in the hunt again".

The media including Crash dare not say what they really see... They'd be shooting themselves in the foot by pointing out what a farce it is.

So basically the whole thing relies on the punter being too dim to catch on that he's being had.

The shame of it that in the main treating people like fools seems to be no problem at all, and the bull is lapped up and swallowed hook, line and sinker.

Anyone betting against the Repsols at Jerez?

Thought not. Yet several will choose to disagree and say that I'm talking "garbage" anyway.

Disagree away Sheep.
