"... anything can happen..."

Hmmm, sounds ominous to me, given the amount of riders who have ridden over their heads this season. Here's hoping for a clean championship battle without any kamikaze moves from all those Ducati's.

What will Ducati team orders be?

My loyalties are fairly split over this one... I've never liked Ducati and Ducatis, but I've been a Haga fan forever. Then I've got Yamaha through me like a stick of rock... but for me it's like Ben who?

Easy in the end though... Go Nori!

The way I see it, if Spies can get the hole shot, maybe he won't have to joust with the pack but Nori doesn't have that option, he has to battle with each rider that is ahead of him and that increases the likelihood of a mishap.
Looking forward to Sunday's races :)

Watching Nori pull the pack in 10-12 laps and go head to head with Spies for the last half would be PERFECT.Here's to a good clean couple of races, may the best man win!

Ben who? You're kidding right? Ben Get 11 Poles at Tracks He's Never Seen, Win Half the Races in His Rookie Season, Teach These WSBK Sloggers How To Ride, Be Champion On Sunday, Take Rossi's Title Next Year, Mutha ****in' Spies, that's who.

I hope one word permeates through the entire track Sunday. PATIENCE!

Spies because he has a whole bunch of people who want past him in a hurry!

Nori because he knows better than anybody that trying to make it all up in one corner will surely end in disaster!

Fabrizio and Johnny Rea because... well you get it.

And finally the crowd because this thing is going to be a brawl! :)
