I'm with Evad on this one, it is going to be a battle and if Lorenzo and Turdosa get together, there could be disaster and Rossi can walk to the top of the podium easily. Edwards is again on top 5 but, as stated before, I rather loose point for NOT picking him than the other way around so my picks are...

Chupa Chops
Rossi
Turdosa
Nicky
Toseland

What the helll is up with Ducati? Casey must be in a very pissy mood, Melandri is battleing with the other Ducs for 16th, 17th & 18th place, he must be wishing that he would have stayed with the Privateer Honda for sure. I do think that Nicky would be able to make that bike go and enjoy the hell out of it more than Melandri... hopefully next year my wishes will come true. I'm a Honda fan but he ain't do nothing there.

I am really impressed with Lorenzo, he is able to put a string of laps together like nobody's business and no one, not even rossi, can touch his pace, hopefully soon, that will translate into race day pace as well.

Track's a bit damp ladies and gens (not a wet race though)... that's not a good thing for the Michelin boys and it means that all of our picks may go down in flames!

Oh and GD, what the hell are you doing up so early? Never mind... don't answer that!

Freaking Edwards... the Bastard!!!

Freaking Nicky... he did an Edwards today, WTF???

Freaking HondaJim... the Bastard!!!

Boring race for the most part but I am glad that Lorenzo is coming along just fine. I am not a Yamaha fan but I will gladly take his win over Turdosa... Yes, I am a pittiful little man!

Dovi was going great but riding over the edge and put it in the kitty litter. You can discount Rossi but they are giving him hell for the most part. Stoner will comeback after this race and I have to hope that it will get better as far as good racing goes.

He had a soft compound front. No way he could hold it there the whole race.

I'm suprised he did as well as he did. He was the lone tire warrior in his camp.

Did anybody see Stoner having to grab something hanging out of his upper fairing and stick it back in? What the hell was that thing?

Commentators said is was some sort of electronics that fell out of place, major balls of stoner to try to put it back in place while in a turn... dem fookers are amazing if you ask me.

Anybody read what happened to Nicky?

His interview on crash.net just said that he pushed it too hard. He wanted to close down the gap on Rossi, and not just settle for fourth. Pushed too hard, and down he went.

Yeah, I read it last night as well and I want to believe him but damn... he was so consistant one year and the next his sharing the kitty littler with the others, what gives? Although, it has to weigh heavily on one's mind the fact that your teammate is getting everything and you ain't getting no love.

Stoner also said (pissed off as hell btw) that the culprit was the damn Camera Dorna made him put on his bike, the thing came off of the velcro and he had to try to deal with it and that took away his concentration. BS if you ask me because he was never in the top 5 in practice or Q's but, a big distraccion nonetheless and him ending up 6th is a good thing for the Championship.

Next few tracks are Bridgestone tracks so we will see what Rossi & Stoner can do. Lorenzo is doing extremely good but Honda has not come out with the Pneumatic valve engine yet, once that is tested, they should be going a bit faster. Well... at least turdosa will
