Moto GP Tipping Contest 2007

I propose a MotoGP Tipping Competition
Pick the top three placegetters, in order if possible

5 points for each picked rider (any position)
An Extra 5 points if the rider you picked to come first.......comes first
An extra 3 points if the rider you picked to come second.....comes second
An extra 2 points if the rider you picked to come Third....fills the last spot on the podium.
Maximum possible points =25

Tips to be in before Qualifying starts. All it needs is for someone to run it!

If you think there should be a prize at the end of the season, I guess that's something for the administrators to organise, otherwise we could just play for bragging rights! I'm in a similar comp elsewhere, it's great, and adds a new aspect to watching the races.

Anyone in? Must hurry as first round this weekend at Qatar. For this round, due to short notice, tips to be in before race start!

1. Rossi
2. Stoner
3. Hayden

That's the plan

Points after Round 1
JK Dilla 12
Chuck 10
Smileyman 10
MadKawi 8
Marko 7
None too Soft 7
Rider 5
1Hottbikechic 5
Ebbs15 5
Tallywacker 5

Lets keep discussion of the race to the other thread.

JK hits the lead after round 1, Thanks to a certain Italian who's always a safe bet, no-one got 0. With 25 points on offer each round, someone not listed above could jump straight to the top of the table.

Remember, Next round, tips will close at the start of Qualifying.

Round 2 Gran Premio de Espana

Mar 26 Jerez. The Jerez circuit doesn't have any excessively long straights, so the Ducati's of Stoner and Loris won't be able to use their top end advantage, Although Loris topped timesheets in Jerez in early 800cc testing.

Valentino Rossi hasn't won a race in his last 5 outings! Dani Pedrosa tips the Yamahas to have the advantage at Jerez, But there is an old Spanish proverb which, loosely translated, says " Never discount the midget riding in front of his home crowd!"

I have it on good authority that, for no other reason than to bugger up tipping comps across the world, six different riders have won the last six races. The last time that happened was 1999/2000, when a record 7 different riders won seven consecutive races. If Vale, Marco, Loris, Toni or Casey (or Troy Bayliss, but that's a given) DON't win this race, it will equal that 99/00 record.

Considering I (a) won't be tied to the computer this weekend, and (b) Foxtel don't show qualifying live, TIPS WILL CLOSE 3AM saturday morning sydney time
THATS 12 NOON FRIDAY IN NEW YORK, AND 5pm FRIDAY IN JEREZ.

Any tips received after this time will simply be disregarded. Don't be the disgruntled one, make sure you're tips are in on time.

New tippers welcome. With 25 points up for grabs, points lost for missing a round or two can easily be made up..........if you know your GP!

My Tips

1. Loris Capirossi
2. Dani Pedrosa
3. Valentino Rossi
