2008 MotoGP Tipping contest Rd 4 China

Tips close 1700 Lisbon time, 2 hours after final practice on Friday
07:00:00 p.m. Friday May 2, 2008 in Asia/Shanghai converts to
09:00:00 p.m. Friday May 2, 2008 in Australia/Sydney
04:00:00 a.m. Friday May 2, 2008 in America/Los_Angeles
07:00:00 a.m. Friday May 2, 2008 in America/New_York


China, top place unless you're a Tibetan
Great track, with long straights, tight corners, and everything in between!
Can Lorenzo maintain his dominance? Will the old master put the young pup in his place? Can Casey finally get his bike to behave?

My Tips

1. Stoner
2. Pedrosa
3. Lorenzo

Wow. I am here in the good ole Central US Zone which means I can't cheat off of the FP1 and 2 results and I will be on the road all weekend and won't even get to watch the race.

So out of pure desperate speculation I will have to pose defensive this week.

I pick Rossi to finally put Bridgestone and Yamaha into harmony for his first win of 08

Lorenzo will play off his momentum and follow Rossi to the line while

Pedrosa will keep on the championship pressure with a third place result.

Could happen...But my gut instinct says it's gonna rain!

Well...Anticipation...Uncertainnty. Lorenzo down in a huge hi-side and has and ankle fracture. Won't cause much of a scene with our tips cause everyone picked him and it's past deadline. Can he still podium on a bad ankle and severe bruising? Will the 70% chance of rain cloud the results? Might even help Jorge by slowing the pace.

Rossi and Stoner seem to have a dry set up ahead of everyone else but Hayden and Pedrosa are fast in the dry too....And I am heading out to miss the whole story until monday!!!!!

Hi All, Sorry I'm late

I had a race meeting at Wakefield park this weekend, had a huge highside on Saturday Afternoon, not quite Lorenzo huge, but it still hurt. My right arm and right hip are a lovely shade of dull purple!
I still managed to get 6 races in on Sunday, and scored second in the Post Classic 0-250 class. I got home last night (2 hour drive from Wakefield) and was totally phuqued. I didn't even unload the van until tonight.

But enough about me..............

ROSSI'S BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!
I haven't seen the race yet, but I couldn't put this off.

Results for round 4 (Round 3 + this round = current score)
Smileyman 41 + 15 = 56
Chuck (Me) 40 + 13 = 53
MadKawi 30 + 5 = 35
Jodepaha 25 + 15 = 40
Rider 15 + 10 = 25
Z06boy 20
JK Dilla 10 + 10 = 20
Pickle of Doom 10 +10 = 20
Trip 10
ScottSellersUNR 5
Ebbs15 5
NoneTooSoft 0

Podium was
1. Rossi
2. Pedrosa
3. Stoner

Well done Smileyman and Jodepaha! Equal top pickers at 15 points. I can see Smileymans going to make me work for it this year

See you next round!!
