MotoGP at the Brickyard

So, what's the hot tip, y'all?

Ben elbowz them all out of the way?

Casey steps up to bat?

Hip, hip - Jorge?

Nicky doctors the Duke, and wins a hometown cliff-hanger?

Where's the smart money going?

Stoner and Lorenzo are going to be battleing for 1st and take each other out toward the end of the race....Spies will be running in third at this point so he will take over the lead and win! Followed by Hayden on the Duc.
So 1st and 2nd places going to americans and Padrosa taking the third spot. And there will be a huge party in Indy!

Sounds good too me....what do you think?

Stoner will be 1st or 2nd and Lorenzo will take the other spot.

Pedrossa will crash in a fiery high side that will shatter his little pelvis.

I will rejoice.

Some very nasty highsides in qualifying, just a reminder of how close to the edge they are riding...

When things happen so fast that the best riders in the world can't react quickly enough, it makes you think, "Hmmm."

They are riding with blind faith in their traction control system. The
only problem with that is when the computer looses the bike you
have no chance to save it.

Stoner had a rough flight.

Landing not shit-hot, either - wonder if he'll race - depends on whether ankle has any mobility, I guess. The pain of the torn ligament can be "disappeared" for a while...

Pedro made that one quite boring. Tightened up the points race.

Ben had a good ride going to the Yammi decided to lunch itself.
