Thanks for the reminder.....

Just read some pre-race stuff.....how bout Hopper racing for Stiggy Honda...?

Stiggy Honda? Jeez man, what a fall from grace.

First of all, nice move Hopper, leaving Suzuki. The bike was starting to gel a little and you took the money to ride for........Kawasaki? Didn't they field Ant West last year? Didn't they struggle to be in the points most every round?

And now you lost out to ....Marco Melandri? Maybe it's because he's European. Maybe it's because you are a crash monkey. Maybe it's 'cause you skipped out on that one round last year because you and your girlfirend were fighting.

Dude.

I seriously hope that Ben and everybody else beats you down. I'm pretty sure they will. Prove me wrong.

Sorry to jack your thread RC but this was fresh on my mind.

C'mon GDJAM... tell us how you really feel!

I am not a fan of Hopper, really I am not but I honestly believe that the move to the Stiggy Honda is far better than the ride he had with Suzuki & Kawasaki, at the very least, if he can keep it on two wheels... he's got a legitimate shot at the title.

I also stated this before but, hopefully, this will not happen, otherwise... it will be just another boring AMA spectacle.

Honestly, I see him winning more races than anyone ever in a single season. I have no doubt that he'll clear off and win them both at Valencia. I gotta' remember to download the stupid client things from the other thread.

Except that Spies is only a couple seconds ahead and the racing behind him is fantastic!

Dammit, Nooooo... I want a dog fight all the way to the end with Spies taking both legs of the race.

I do not want to have to do this though.

Maybe in a year or so Ben will hook-up with a top MotoGP team. I would love to see him duke it out with Rossi and the boys. He really surprised me learning the tracks and bike so fast.

There are already strong rumors that he may be taking over James Toseland's ride on the Tech 3 Yamaha MotoGP team by 2010. Colin Edwards would be the ideal teammate since Colin has nothing to prove, is collecting a pay check and may be incline to teach Ben a thing or two about the riders, tracks and culture of racing the MotoGP circuits..

I was a little concerned after First Practice but then I started to think "Well, maybe he's taking it easy to learn the track some more."

And then came Provisional Qualifying and I'm starting to laugh again.

I'm wondering what the times are going to look like tomorrow....

Cmulford or anybody else using the FREE P2p clients... have you been able to get the video streaming? I have tried with both TVants and TVUplayer to no avail.

I thought my vista pc was the culprit but I just went to my XP laptop and I am getting the same crap... please wait while buffering.

this is annoying to say the least but I guess is true when they say... beggars can't be choosers!

All I want is for this to work tomorrow, I really don't care about today but, if this is any indication, we are for a rude awakening tomorrow at 6 am...

Well it looks like Spies has got them covered again. Yeah too bad for Hopper maybe a little more acclimation we could see him running in the top 5

I didn't get back from my run until after it was over so I don't know if my latest method is working. I'll have to see tomorrow morning but even if it does I'll only be able to see the first race before I have to take off for the day so I'll be having to wait until Tuesday anyway unless you're able to find the links to the videos like the first race weekend.

It's only 0.6 seconds but even still, he's up there and could probably run for it. Then again, the practice times have all been real close so this could be an amazing race! Three poles in a row and 3 of 4 race wins.... You think Nori is pissed he left Yamaha?

Edit: That's not to say I think it's all the bike, because I think it's mostly about Ben. But the bike is capable...

I SWEAR they had him in the 32's when they first posted that up.......or maybe I need to practice my guzintas and fromouttas


And yup, it's all about Ben. Where's Sykes? What about Bostrom and Hayes, for that matter?

If Ben stays up, I think he doubles again.
