I don't know how to gauge this one.

Elias amd Melandri have looked particularly ordinary by their standards till this weekend the bike their on and Sepang is probably a good chamce for them to have strong races.

Will they be stronger at rrmegular tracks where the bike advantage and experience factor is eliminated???

I'd just like to see both Melandri and Elias back this one up before I can say they are back.

Melandri will come on form again consistently when Manu can make it to the track again he needs her "moral support". Plus they have to fill the pre and post race chit chat with something other than flags.

Good race by the Aprilia boys but surprised that Guintoli made so many mistakes when Melandri caught up and passed him in both races but especially the second race. I agree with others that this race is probably different than other tracks as this one suited the Aprilia and riders with experience on it. In the second race I thought the Kawi's would have been more of a factor than they were. Will they resume the previous order of things at the next race? Probably so.

re: "I don't know how to gauge this one."

no worries, you may gauge it according to one of my recent comments. if you're looking for a rider to open a can o' whoop a$$ on Marcus...? well here he is, right on cue, see.
