Spoiler:
Well, what a boring way to finish the year, Stoner in front by 2 to 3 seconds from turdosa, Rossi another 4 to 6 secs, Dovi way behind and we lost the signal so we couldn't see when Nicky was passed by both Dovi and Rossi. I am just hoping they will let us see the Test w/o wanting us to pay for it.

I waited until the end to see if they would interview Nicky but, it never came, I guess he was a little miffed and didn't want to come out as a whiner, we'll see if they give us something later.

I don't know if this is a good indication or not but they said that Dani will test the new bike tomorrow but Dovi will only get to test Nicky's bike. Why is that I wonder? conspiracy theorists will say that it is so he can gradually can come to grips with the changes from his bike to Nicky's, others will state that PUIG's hand is already showing off and he doesn't want anybody else with equal footage than Turdosa... only time will tell I guess.


Congratulation to the winner of this year Fantasy Championship, I am just hoping it won't be HondaJim again! the Bastid is paying off mistermike me thinks

Well played Evad. This has been the closest one yet. Right down to the wire it could have went either way for all three of us.

That was a good one as far as our picks. Congrats to Evad and Tuono. Good job guys, especially Dave for not sandbagging the picks.

I was robbed!!!!! I demand an audit!!!

Good job to all the guys on the podium. I thought I knew MotoGP until I got with this group.

I will label this a "rebuilding year" Next year I will have new tires, a new ride, and a new attitude.

Be afraid.

You as well Sir! Very well played. The last round I was very close to putting Hayden in 4th and Rossi 3rd! Would have given me the win! But something said Hayden was on fire and was going to go for it! mIght have been different if he had is A bike.

I don't know how you guys do it, separete the Fantasy Championship with the enjoynment of the racing itself... I can't. As stated before, I sometimes see my self cheering more for the picks I have chosen and not for the riders I really want to win the race!

Its pretty easy, I'm a realist. I want Hayden to win but I know its not going
to happen. (Hopefully changing next year)

I like the the top 5 guys so its always fun trying to figure out who will come out where on that particular day.

For the most part, I really just want to see a great race, like Stoner VS Rossi at Laguna!

I still hold the record as the only one to get all five picks in correct order! Yeah me. I wanted to be the first two time winner this year but Phil and Dave were tough competition. You guys rest up.


Hey MisterMike, what do you think about upping the anty next year to $35 and have at least $10 of it go to the website upfront? Or stick with $25 and have $10 go upfront, thus reducing the prize money? Just a thought.

And I agree. We need more people involved next year. We need to start recruiting early.

Jim: You have hit on a really good idea. I'm hoping the support for our forum will bring in new players.

Does anyone have additional recruiting ideas? Please speak up.

Congrats to the winners. it's been fun, just wish i could have participated more, i had far too many distractions this year. That's my excuse anyway.

Recruit ideas, well what if we offered a prize (could be an item from Jet's store or something) for the 25 person to pay the entry fee. If we get enough new recruits maybe we could keep the fee the same, eh?
