Nice start Tom. Looking good and comfortable. Awesome pic too... Check how low that bike's sitting.

I really hope he pulls a double win come Sunday, REALLLY close this championship up for the last round.

Not sure what's wrong with John Hopkins. Could still be suffering from all the injuries he has had lately which is a shame. The bike isn't the best, but if Leon can do it, Hopper should.

I am worried about Hopper.

Couldit be that it's just one injury too far? That he's just reached a point where he can't bring himself to push as hard as is needed? Who knows? I hope he finds his way back to the form he showed last year.

As for Camier, I am happy he is showing pace, and outperforming his team mate. A LOT of guys came on here and had a lot of trash to talk about him, and they have since vanished. I think Leon on a factory Yamaha would be a force to be reckoned with.

I hate to say this but Tom wont have a shot at winning on this years Pirelli tire unless its wet/mixed conditions. So sad, but this is what you guys wanted when you argue for single control tires. Not unless Pirelli do him a special favor.

Max will pass him every race unless Aprilia fall back again, BMW seem to have the best balance between bike performance and tire performance. Still Marco's to lose, Max is going to have to remain as true as a finely crafted sword to win this year.

@ pcxmac

I see a lot of your posts, and they are mostly about tyres (tires). Disproportionately so in fact - you regularly seem to slate the rubber in both MotoGp (Bridgestone) and WSBK (Pirelli). Can't say I've seen you knocking any Dunlop rubber from memory through.

I know there are pro's & con's to a single tyre rule, but you really do bash on about this A LOT.

Are you employed by a rival tyre manufacturer by some chance?
