Read all about our pool. You can still participate without the GP champion pick. Let me know if you're interested.

Don't count on Stoner being close to the front at Jerez, he struggled last year and it looks to be a repeat this year as well. It is clear by his body language and bike posture that he is really having a hard time controlling that beast. It seems that Jerez and the Stoner/Ducati/Bridgestone combo don't get along to well.

It is still to early for me to decide who will take it but it looks like a Battle Royal between the two Spanish Archrivals, only, this time, Lorenzo's got the Turd beat... or so it seems. Now, being said that, something tells me that the little Turd will try to prove that he is still better than lorenzo and ram both of them into the ground but I hope this is just a cheet thought on my part.

Does Rossi seem happy to you?

Man the Midget was fast today. Casey was in the Kitty Litter Alot. Nicky looked strong and pulled off an amazing save. Lorenzo I expected to put more pressure on Pedrosa. Valentino near the front again. Can't wait for Portugal

What a crazy weekend.
Spoiler:
Colin makes a big save in practice.
Nicky makes a big save in the the race.
Rossi saw Jesus and wondered if his wheels were going to fall off.
Stoner was peeing in the sand a bunch.

The only thing that I could've easily predicted was Pedrosa giving an emotionless interview while looking down at his knees, he must love looking at his knees.
Rossi had me laughing with his expressions, I'd buy him a beer just to hear him tell stories.

Did you see Rossi think the race was over with one lap left? He really had to put his head down to hold second.
