Melandri is really showing his class this year, it amazes me when people are surprised by what he did last year and this year. This guy was a 250 world champ and second in moto gp to VR in his prime. I'm sure he'll be up there but i'm still hoping Sykes can get the job done at home.

Being second to Rossi in motogp is hardly something to be proud of, Rossi has been exposed as just another average rider.

Biaggi, a motogp reject and 41 years old...Melandri on the best bike...Melandri should hang his head in shame if he doesnt win the title.

It will be a travesty of justice if Melandri and BMW don't win the championship this year. They are pouring enormous amounts of development time and funds into their World Superbike effort. BMW in particular,is spending the sort of money that could a a job done in MotoGP.

as long as bikes continue to be sold, Munich says Motogp can SUCK IT...!!! the long standing safety cars are all the presence they need.

only to have it circling the drain right along with the rest who falsely invested in grandprix. shrewd are the boffin counters of bavaria.

this is going to be a key race. Aprilia did some testing in Mugello and I think they solve most of the chattering problems they had in Brno, but Max doesn't like Silverstone too much, hopefully for him brits will help him stop Melandri... Expecting some big show from Haslam, he's at a career turnpoint...
