We have 6 riders who are going to finish in the top 6

Stoner, Pedro, Edwards, Rossi, Dovizioso, & Lorenzo. Picking the 6th rider is the hard part.

1. Stoner
2. Rossi
3. Pedro
4. Lorenzo
5. Dovizioso

6. Edwards - I really do not want to put him back here but its going to be a close race I feel. Lorenzo is getting healthy and comes on strong in a race.
Ugh, pulling my hair out on this one!

Spoiler:
Great scrap at the beginning, is it wrong that I had a little chuckle when the turd went down? , boring race after those first few laps but glad the Championship is shaping up to a good battle for the end. Laguna better be dry or we're going to have boycott rain races .

I have never been a Ducati fan but I am looking forward to the announcement that Nicky will ride for them next year, this way, we can finally decide if the kid has the skills or not... I know he'll do well.

I would have loved for it to be in the dry to rack up a few more points myself but I think I did well considering.

Friendly Reminder.

Please get your picks in on time, it is not fair to the other players. The deadline will be bumped to to 3am Eastern time which should give the west coast members plenty of time.

Any picks after the 3 am deadline will automatically get the 6 -10 gird position absentee picks. If you already have one absentee pick then your score will be 0.

Thanks for your cooperation.

thanks for the 12pm westcoast time deadline...
I almost never get home before 10pm on Saturday evenings so this really helps me...

Friggin' rain. I hate GP races in the rain. Feels like I didn't get to see the best race possible.

Pedro had the field covered until his front washout. Didn't hear what happened to Nicky's bike. That thing has been having some weird electrical stuff going on.



And thanks Mike for the reminder. I'm the instigator so you guys can shoot me if you want. The rules were starting to slip, and when there's a chance of rain it can play to someone's advantage. I don't care about any of the money should I win something, I'll donate it to the site. I just think we need to have a deadline and live by it. Otherwise run the picks right up to WUP.

I have always stated that we should leave (or have) the DEADLINE until after WUP but, I also understand that the chances are the same for all of us whether we gamble on dry or rain race so, I am/was ok with it.

Moving the DL for 3 am EST is also a good idea I think but it should be enforced as this also creates more problems for MisterMike.

Look who just took the lead!!!


As a far as the time line goes, I am on the west coast and believe I have only come close to missing it once due to being out of town or something. (Don't remember)

Ideally I'd like a time line up to WUP but hat really isn't fair to those like me and RC90 who are junkies and what MotoGP.com for all the latest updates.

I like what we have and think the existi9ng time line is fair to all. Its a simple rule that we all need to play by.
