You know what, I made a comment to myself that he was doing very good in practice and, after all, he knows this track better than anyone. Besides, Nicky stated that he feels the race will be hard tomorrow so that translate into another top 8 at best.

Here are my changes

Rossi
Stoner
Pedrosa
Lorenzo
Capirex

If the race is wet... all bets are off!!


P.S.: So, who's going to be up at 8:00 A.M. to watch the race Live? to bad for some of you Lo-hoo-sers that need to wait until 10 PM to watch 10 laps out of 26

Spoiler:
So, what the hell happened to DeAngelis at the start and what the hell did they feed that boy at the breakfast table? The kid was moving, putting down fast laps after fast laps for 25 laps?

Nicky is as lost as a fart in church, if Honda doesn't punt him before the year is over, he should be talking to Ducati, I am sure they still would want him and I am also sure that he could do better on that bike than Top 10 or Top 15 on the Honda. I still don't blame him for what's happening to him but... it is sad for sure. Hell, even Edwards is doing better than him on that Satellite bike.

According to Honda, they will have the neumatic valve engine for Barcelona, Turdosa doesn't want it, Nicky's been asking for it since the LeMans race... WTF???

The Yammies are kicking ass and taking names (all of them!), Ducati needs someone to put that beast back on Track since Stoner is that good but perhaps not a good developer of bikes yet? Suzuki's only chance for glory was Mugello with Capirex but even if I was hopeful, it didn't pan out for him and even the Satellite Hondas were doing much better. Kawi went backwards and I feel Hopper is not helping much... poor West, having to fend off Okada who has not race for 8 years and is 99 yrs old.

Melandri, what can we say about that kid? As rich as he is, he can not buy a piece of good luck this year... who is up for a Honda/Ducati - Melandri/Nicky switch?

The Honda pneumatic valve engine was in the race. Just wasn't Pedro or Hayden. I forget who was running it.

Nicky was not only getting outridden, but out-muscled as well. Guys were barging their was past him.

I like Melandri. I'd like to see him back on a Honda.

What's up Caprix? He had excellent pre-race times and hung with the leading group in the beginning.

HiondaJim - You were smart not jumping on the Stoner bandwagon for 2008 GP champion.

The race was great (what a cool circuit), but the best part was when * was hosing down the podium girl. He just wouldn't stop spraying her a$$.

Sorry--I'm searching now to find out how to add spoiler drop-down.

Watched it last night. Great race, but WTF is going on with Nicky?! 4 seconds behind on laps times? He's still 40 sec per lap better than me.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

We'll see. Still early. I'm now in a fight for the lead.

Good race. Rossi's helmet was hilarious. You can't bet against him at mugello. Stoner looks back his old form. Nicky's bike was stuck in reverse. Man De angelis was flying.
