Good God, have you seen the Qualifying results for tomorrow's race yet? it does not look good and by that I mean very deceiving.

Stoner & Rossi are both suffering from some kind of illness so there may not be an edge from any of them, Lorenzo and Toseland didn't even posted times (a little extra curriculum dirt excursion perhaps?), Earkins is on the front row after being out all this time (rain helps I guess), the Mole is there but we kind of expected that.

Turdosa is on the 4th row and I seriously do not expect him to finish inside the top 5 because of the Michelin Fiasco with the front tires (I'd bet he's thrill ).

I believe now that Nicky did the right thing by sitting this one out.

But I digress... here are my awful pics

Stoner
Rossi
Vermulen
Hopkins
DeAngelis

I want to give the last spot to Nakano since he is racing Nicky's bike but he has not have a lot of seat time on it so, I am playing it as safe as I can play it in this turmoil weekend.

Picks may change after I see what evad101 will pick because I have not watch any of the practice videos this weekend. HondaJim is getting old and senile so he can't be trusted

Well qualifying sick is one thing but running a full race while sick is quite another. I don't think even Stoner can pull it off.
  1. Rossi
  2. Vermulin
  3. Hopkins
  4. West
  5. De Angelis
