2008 MotoGP Tipping Comp, Round 1 Qatar

WE'RE BACK FOR 2008!!!
:d thumb:
Under Lights

The race starts at 2300 local time. The telecast in Australia starts at 3AM. I mean, it's after Pedrosas bedtime! How will he hold his teddy on the bike??

Get your tips in people! You remember how it works

5 points for a correct tip anywhere in the top 3.
An extra 5 points for correctly tipping the first place rider
An extra 3 for the second place rider
An extra 2 for the third rider

So if you pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd, in the correct positions, it worth 25 points.

Last year I won, only because I tipped every round ( I sort've have to, coz I'm running it!). I also tip first every round, so it's not like I've got any advantage.
GET YOUR TIPS IN EARLY
I'll accept your latest tips before the cutoff time, so if you change your mind at the last minute, put another set of tips in, and I'll just disregard the first lot. If you don't get them in in time, then I'll go with your earlier tips. but if you haven't got anything in, then you get nuffin'

CHUCK YOU ROCK!!!
THANKS FOR BRINGIN IT BACK!




Its been a long off season, and I'm ready for this year. MotoGP should be interesting this year. So much going on with the big name rookies, and everyone trying to catch up to Casey. Race 1, I've got to stick with the perennials...


1. Stoner
2. Pedrosa
3. Hayden


Start your engines!!!

Results round 1

Results are below... if you don't want to know, dont scroll down!


















What a top race.... from a "this is going to be a great season" perspective. Casey blew the start, got shunted, then rode a calculating, precise race. 3 debuts in the top 7, Lorenzo, Davisioso and Toseland. Rossi and Edwards doing well, but not dominating over the newbies. How good did that circuit look under lights?? Not a bad use of $50Mil US!

But now, the Important bit!
Results for round 1 (in order of tips placed)
Chuck (Me) 15
Trip 10
Pickle of Doom 10
Ebbs15 5
Smileyman 13
MadKawi 15
NoneTooSoft 0
Jodepaha 0
Rider 5
JK Dilla 10
Z06boy 10
ScottSellersUNR 0 (woulda got 10)

Race results
1. Stoner
2. Lorenzo
3. Pedrosa


See you all for round 2 30 Mar at Jerez, Spain

I just don't understand, Lorenzo did very well, but michilin still lost to bridgestone! Same effect last year but Rossi was second. I think Stoner has a screamer of a bike, and he's riding it like a rocket! Good Job!!!!! ( And I'm a ROSSI fan!) Still it's a long year, Time will tell

GO Rossi


Chuck, How do you pick'em!

Awesome race! Good on Casey! Good on Toseland! Seems the Yamaha's have their stuff together! HRC obviously have their heads in a crack starting the season with last years bike...What are they thinking? Last years bike wasn't that good...

Pedrosa was on this years bike, Nicky couldn't come to terms with it, so he opted for the 07 bike. Dani got 3rd, so not too bad!

Hot competition or otherwise known as World Superbike! LOL.

Actually Qatar was quite entertaining. The 250's are pretty close this year, like always. Still alot to appreciate...

Speaking of WSBK, the tech 3 team is a WSBK all star team. And did pretty good for a satellite team. Both Q's on the front row! watchem when they get their real bikes in a few rounds.
