Rossi in a cake-walk in MotoGP, though I'm pulling for Edwards and Hayden. Mladin will have to fall off to not win again, so that leaves me with Tommy Hayden and his sweet green machine to root for.

But I agree, glad racing season is around the corner!

i think Rossi, but not without a fight. The Ducatis should be good this year, and id like Shinya Nakano to end up in the top five in championship points. And as always, GO COLIN!

I hope Spies challenges Mladin for for the AMA. But i can see Hodgson making a real run now that he has another year on AMA tracks.

I think Spies is great, but will he always be the "little pup" to Mladin's "alpha male"? When Mladin gets a fire goin' seems like he can put an easy half-a-lap-gap on the rest, STILL! Hell, I think I remember him kicking around GP like back when Kocinski was floggin' the old Cagiva!

Hodgson seems to run hot and cold, but he's got skills for sure. How fast/reliable will the bikes be this year? Up against the mighty GSXR? No chance.

SBK? Hell, I don't know...is Pier-Francesco Chili still on two wheels?

race 1
1 James Toseland Winston Ten Kate Honda Honda CBR 1000RR
2 Troy Bayliss Ducati Xerox Team Ducati 999F06
3 Andrew Pitt Yamaha Motor Italia WSB Team Yamaha YZF R1

race 2
1 Troy Corser Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra Suzuki GSXR1000 K6
2 Troy Bayliss Ducati Xerox Team Ducati 999F06
3 Noriyuki Haga Yamaha Motor Italia WSB Team Yamaha YZF R1

once the yamahas can get things together for a whole race, i think they will be a hand full for everyone else.

Haga was amazing on the brakes in the first race...until the last lap when when he low-sided diving under the leader, took 'em both out. Toseland picked up the scraps.
Second race I didn't watch 'cause I was so pissed at Haga. And I couldn't take the TV announcers' annoying British-accented screaming whenever something minor happened, or their incessant pimping of those fabulous Brit riders, back in like 13th or whatever...

My write-up from the race is here. Remember when you make a thread with results of a race inside to put a warning in the title.

Warnings are nice. I have it recorded but haven't watched it yet. Not that the warning would have helped cause a friend called and spilled the beans already.

the real trick is not looking up the results online and waiting for the tape-delay on TV. i wasnt strong enough this time.
